not happy with my floating robo duck... keeps tipping over

9 posts in this topic

I have had nothing but problems with the floating mojo duck. It always seems to tip over. I have even filled my bathtub with water and moved the battery around hoping to find the right balance.....anyone else having this problem? any ideas how to correct it?

I have used the floater mojo all season with only one tip over. That happened because we were sitting in a fairly narrow channel with the wind in our face about 25 mph. Otherwise it's been great, I am usually set up with the wind at my back so it's always in the calm.

If I'm in a spot where it will be exposed to the wind, I will probably leave it at home.

Hey Zeek

I bought a floater 7 years ago whereas the guys I hunt with had robos on a stick. I retired mine 5 yrs ago as it was a pain to deal with. Had to be calm water and it was always a battle to carry it. Go with a long pole style spinner and send that floater down the Mississip.

I bought one this season and am in love with it. I t has tiopped over once because the dog sawm into it. I had to open her up and dry it out after that, everything is fine, on/off switch sticks at times, but no big deal. Maybe it tips over because water has found a way into the plastic base, or else make sure it is centered on the base, there are different slots on there for a reason I am assuming.

Also the new ones have come a ,ong way from the first ones on the market. MOJO now claims they are unsinkable. They totally redesigned the decoy on a hard plastic base that seems to work just great. I know the older ones were pretty hard to keep from tipping over.

This is a great motion decoy, it requires no pole and dance around, especially if you get some wind, and adds some serious lifelike motion. I brought it out to hunt with a guy who had never hunted with a floater, he got a kick out of it, the wind moved it around so it looked like it was attacking the other decoys.

Yeah, im to the point where I just leave it at home. Really frustrating to deal with at 5a.m. Seems like a lot of money to sit on a shelf in the garage.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
