Jigging machine ?

6 posts in this topic

I'm in Colorado and saw some guys with an automatic jigging machine made from a windshiled wiper motor. They used it to put a bunch of flashers on to draw in the Kokanee Salmon. I have heard it may be patented but I don't know. I'm wondering if you MN ice vets have ever seen or heard of such an animal? I would like to get one or build one....need you advice

Well, it's not made from a windshield washer motor but this is a very nifty automated jigger.

The Finicky's Fish factory is an automated all weather jigging heated tip-up box.

Finicky's also have a wall mount unit the Motivator, it can be mounted anywhere like on a pail or in the shack.

Will thay do what i need? Can you attach a line with a bunch of trolling flashers to attract fish to your other holes?

Sure the Motorvator is strong enough to handle a pretty good load. I had a #2 Goldeye jigging for bait on one.

Have you ever tried Mack's Spinner blades? They are great as flashers under the ice. They make a flasher string just for salmon and trout. I often use them on pike with wind tip-ups. They will spin with as little as 1/2 MPR of resistance. Flutter down, and spin up, or visa-versa depending on how you rig them. It works great as a schooling attractor!

Tightlines...sorry but I do not have an address for a web site for Finicky's.

The Motorvator Automatic Jigging System for inside your permanent fish house is also available here through FM's IceLeaders gear section.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
