Welcome to hunting and to the forum! It's going to be tough to get a whole lot of specific help on certain spots unless you just run into someone feeling extra generous. My advice would be to download either google earth or flash earth onto your computer and start looking at arial photos of areas you've heard ducks tend to hang around or places you'd like to hunt. Of course you arent going to see ducks in these photos, but you'll we'll be able to find creek mouths, coves, pockets, sloughs etc. where birds are usually drawn to and then all you have to do is put some miles on your truck and boots. When I'm hunting a new area I'll find 4 or 5 places and spend an afternoon scouting those areas. Get out there early when the ducks will be flying and watch from a distance with some binos. As it gets later in the day and you're working down in your list of areas to scout, look for birds closer to the bank or if there aren't birds, look for pick feathers on the water and water's edge. If you're going to hunt the river I'd suggest scouting areas with tight turns where the river gets narrow because as the birds fly up and down the river this will be the best place to pass shoot birds, just make sure you have a way of getting any downed birds. I know this is a broad answer, but as you duck hunt more you'll see how hard it is to find really good concentrations of birds in the southeast and how you will also tend to stay tight lipped about your honey holes. Good luck and I hope this helps! Keep us posted!
