As big as possible. get at least a 20 x 100' roll and cut it in half, round the corners by tucking it under neath. Rocks, dirt clods, u shaped wire anchors that are used to hold erosion control fabric.

Ive heard of these but i have no clue how they work! do u put water oon the tarp or do the ducks/geese think it is water? Where do u get that big of rolls of the stuff. And does it really work?!

Yes it really does work and we have done it several times on Lake Erie when it freezes up, the divers love it and think it is water, ecspecially with a nice wind and some ripple action they try and land on it, we were white tyvek painters suits and put dekes around edges to hold it secure, I have heard of lots of guys doing it in fields as well

it works

i have it done it and it does work...it is even better for a field
if you anchor it down well and leave it for a couple of days and
between the rain and condensation there will be an inch or two
of water in it in the lower spots which makes it even more realistic

Tricking them into thinking it's real water? That sounds so cool! I'm gonna have to try that sometime.

Building supply Stores H.D. or Lowes... go to a local place and ask if they have any damaged stuff... cheap ... retail it is like $80.00 a 20 x 100 ft roll.. good luck

you can even go so far as to add some grass 'islands' using the grass mats sold for holding seed and decreasing erosion....check with the local highway department for remnants (it also is great for snow covered fields)
