Anyone made a feeder decoy with a bilge pump or areator pump?

Hey man,

This was discussed already this week, but here is the link on how it is done step by step. I have not done it yet, but it is on my list. I have 2 store bought ones already.

Your welcome. If you build one, let me know how it turns out.

Ive built 2 so far and in the process to making another two. The only have one suggestion..

For packing in and out of the blind, the 90 degree pvc attached to the bilge pump can be cumbersome.So instead, I just put a light coat of the 552 marine sealant on the nipple (or outgoing pump part) to create a tighter seal, and then drilled a small hole through to put a pin in it. Holds the 90 tight in there, easy to take apart and never had an issue.

Overall, ingenious idea and works great!

I made two of these following the link, only things I did differently was used a mojo timer instead of a blinker so the pulses could be spread out a bit more and didn't use male or female connectors..wiring the mojo timer is "With the MOJO name facing you the wires are black-battery neg, red-battery pos., red - motor wire, black to on/off switch or black motor wire."

Lemon,
I made one from the instructions on Bloody Decks that are referenced in a couple of the above posts. It's been several years ago and the "frantic feeder", as I call it, is still working well. One thing I would recommend, that I did, is to wire the electrical cable to the little wire ring on the tab that is attached to the "dry box". This action takes the strain off the wiring connection at the box and allows you to use the wire to the battery to be the decoy line and the battery box to be the anchor.

You can see what I did on several of the pics of the project on the photobucket link below this picture:

I was about to get the stuff to buid one when I saw that mojo has one that is self contained, no wires or battery box needed fo 81 to 99bucks depending on where u get it> I figure it wld cost about 60 to 75 to make one and that's not counting decoy butt.

I made 2 quiver butt decoys by cutting the keel off of the decoys and gorilla gluing the lid of a quiver magnet to the bottom of the decoy so you can still unscrew it to change batteries and let it dry. They work great at addi NH ripples to the water and even motion to the decoys. They are totally self contained and run off A A batteries just like my light and MOJO so I always have extra batteries.
