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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
