    Default Using a MOJO decoy in rocks.

    I think it was labman, who pm'd me about a base I made to use on the rocky bottom of the rivers here?
    Anyways, here is what I made for when you cant get a stake in the ground.
    If the current is really moving, you can roll some rocks on it to hold it from tipping over.

    Shoulder strap for easier carrying.

    hmmm?
    That works in a fast current?
    How do you anchor it?
    We had to move up 6oz mushrooms for decoys in a few spots.

    Usually a 4 oz j weight works. easy enough to double. I normally don't place a mojo in the strongest point of the current since eddies are wear the ducks hang. Overall it is just easier in deeper water too where the pole is always 2 feet, too short. Works fine in the field too, kick some dirt on the base. Calm pond water I'll stack a pole mojo above the floater to represent staged landings.

    I saw a contraption that had a frame with decoys zip-tied to it to float the mojo, I imagine that it would also add some free ripples with it. I'm thinking of making one for my self.

    I dont use a mojo..I use a Wind Whacker flasher, easier to carry and just takes a breath of wind to move it,I use a piece of rebar to reinforce it..the only tough time is when the ground is frozen, then I have to break out the power drill with a mason drill bit to break some dirt

    angle bar with a 2" pipe welded on it. Take a 4lb maul with you. Same as we use for steelhead rod holder plunking. They take about 5 minutes to weld up and last forever.

    this is what i use now and after the pic was taken it was spray painted black but tie a decoy to each corner and the mojo wobbles quite a bit so with the decoys on the corners alot of motion is put on the water.
