Find out where the birds are going to and coming from, set up on those "runways". The more dekes the marrier, from shore we usually use J, U, V, X, W, or 2 big ol blobs placed out.Just make sure you got the wind right and be where the birds are going to be.

Not on big water but we just through out two "blobs" and it works for us.
The group ended up with 420 birds.
