    When do the drone decoys come out?

    Have a whole flock fly and land in unison. Patent pending of course.

    I have used those stakes for burlap blinds. Too thick, not enough flexibility in my opinion. I'd buy a cheap Crappie Fishing Pole at Walmart. The cap comes off the butt end and can fit over a rebar or other round spike in the ground. You probably will have to either cut a good section of the last thin section of the pole off as it will be too thin to be a solid support.. Heck, any old fishing pole will work.

    Guess that's a down south thing, my hands would get cold setting it up. Ya want a spinner to move around, get a floating one and save the hassle of having another thing to carry/setup.

    Wonder how they KNOW it's 87% more effective than a standard MOJO stake? I'd like to see the metrics used to come up with that... Also like to see how many folks forget to tighten the decoy up to the stake, and get to pulling on it back and forth really hard and let go of the string, only to see their brand new MOJO go flying off into the water.

    I could make one of those in about 15 minutes. A 3' section of rebar or other steel bar that is pushed solid into the lake bottom and also fits the inside of the butt end of a crappie pole about 8 inches. Something mounted on the MOJO that fits into the other thinner end of the pole, a line that goes from the upper end of the pole down to 3, 3 hole bricks wire tied together. No need for all that square bar apparatus. A single wire tie making a loop that has aquarium hose in the loop to protect the line from chaffing that is all attached thru the bricks that the line feeds thru which is sent under water to the blind. OK maybe 20 minutes with a Sea Trial. :joker
