Postby Stack_em_up » Tue Oct 09, 2012 9:17 pm

I've tried using a mojo for divers before and im not sure if it helped, anyone out there have advice or any stories where they helped or hurt your hunt?

Agreed. I have uses one on coastline in Florida for reds,and have had scaup cup in on it twice after getting shot at on first pass. It all depends. Its worked for me but it may not work every time

Sweet! I was told that you should have them on the most upwind part of your spread is that true or what?

Like I said it all depends. Were in the panhandle so a strong south wind during a front coming from the gulf tends to push those large rafts of birds closer to shore because they usually hang out almost a mile from shore during day. We would stick ours almost in middle of spread on like a 10' pole and that's it. Plus we have issues with tide too sobthat makes a difference. If u have a good sustained wind then yes I would set it so that it is facing into wind. I dony think location matters but it's really trial and error.

Works for us, we've put two or three out at times. Bluebills don't seem to mind where they are located.

I usually put the mojo in the pocket I want my ducks to land. Not sure if it is correct or not, but I have no complaints. :grooving:

You are better off without them IMO. I have field tested this quite a bit.

some people might disagree with me, but i use a mojo on diving ducks and, IMO, it works great. hell one time we set out two dozen floaters...but with 5 mojos. worked great. it worked well to catch their attention and pull them off from a ways away and right onto the spread.

I have had no discernible advantage with them. I have decided this year to try flagging.

This may not help anyone but way up north here in Minnesota they help maybe because the birds aren't educated yet but I have a mojo bluebill floater and love it. I have had birds turn hard on it on the lakes I have hunted with it and my hunting buddies as well. He also purchased a mallard mojo floater and is thinking of painting it up as a redhead. I think it would look cooler than pull birds in but who knows. We like to set ours at the landing zone at the head of our line rigs. Just my .02

Well this last week I hunted divers in northern mn and I used a mojo on a rainy dark day and I have to say that it really seemed to help early in the morning when it was still dark and raining but as the day went on and got lighter and stopped raining the birds started to come in then they would flair the mojo.
