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.
