what you want in a good spread is decoys to block the birds from going where you dont want them and decoys to make a landing strip to get them to land where you want.. remember ducks will always land into the wind so setup accordingly.. a j spread is basically setup in theshape of a J a wall of decoys to block the birds from landing where you dont want them and the hook of the j is where you want them to land. and it is not just a straight line of decoys use a bunch to form the arm of the J and use a bunch to setup the hook.. i will e-mail you a pic of some of the more common spread setups

if u do a J spread put between 10-12 decoys on the little hook then spread them out to some what of a point. and realize the ducks will use the side of the j that hooks as the landing zone. works well if ur getting ducks to come in real low to check out ur spread cuz they think bout dropping in and if they dont they cirlce with in shotgun range to drop in in that landing zone.
Just making my way the only way i know how!
