Try to simulate the positioning of the bids in the field you plan to hunt. If your running traffic or on a field your not familiar with the L of U formations work well.

Remember to set your decoys with the wind at your back so they have the pocket to land into. Remember to keep some space between the fmaily groups and limit the number of sentrys.

dont forget to put some duck shells or full bodies behind your layouts as well. We also put spinners when allowed. if you have ducks feeding in fields in the area this can be one of the funnest ways to hunt them, they will usually come around sun-up so be ready and hit them with some good calling. nothing better than having them swarm your spread and shooting them with their feet down 10 feet off the ground right in your face

Another thing is to not have them all facing into the wind....This simulates birds ready to take flight... When you observe birds in the field they mill around and face all directions.

good point. we mix it up with the decoys all the time. we use big foots and other full bodies, some with moving bases, silo's, shells, higdon shells. The movement is the key. if you have heads bobbing and weavingand bodies moving side to side this is killer, use a flag when they are far out too. if you have a duck spinner turn it off with the geese are coming in, they dont like this type of movement, but the green heads do

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
