Put a spread of decoys out, just to catch their attention.
Then get a flag, (normally you see flags for canadian geese).
Use the flags, black plus also use the white ones. You want the flash of the flag to drawn them in.
Believe it or not it will work if the ducks are flying by...
I like to use a spread of full body goose dekes for visability and I own a ton so it makes sense. Also our seasons overlap so we are always chasing ducks and geese at the same time. I would get a loud single reed duck call and try to get their attention as they fly by.....you can use flags, white gloves to add motion.
My brother and I have acually pulled birds off of other hunters on public land by using our duck floaters in dry corn fields with the mojos going. We have observed ducks that will fly right over the flooded corn over into our field of dry corn.
MAN I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER!!!
i use a spread of about 3 doz goose decoys and i took 2 doz flambuea mallards and cut the kiels off them and use them like a duck shell in the stuble. i also use a lucky duck spinner and put 2 carrylight landing mallards on camo conduit poles to look like landing mallards. we also have 2 goose flags in our crew. we hunt ducks and geese at the same time. my spread sucks em right in most of the time. Oh yeah i also use ghg corn decoys. to be honest i noticed the difference right away looks like the flock is feeding on fresh ear corn. this year i plan on adding 2 dozen ghg duck shells to the spread and maybe a half dozen more full body geese.
If you dont want to put up big money for full bodys some goose shells and like WI Gunner said cut the keels off some old floaters. You might pull them off. Are you near where the birds are coming and going? I mean do they see the field on their way somewhere else? If so get some motion in your spread like some of the guys said. Flags Spinners motion stakes and that will help.

Duck hunting is all about location, location, location. If the ducks dont want to be there then the nicest spread in the country isnt gonna pull 'em. If you dont have any fly overs or there arent alot of ducks in the area all the time then find a new spot. A decent spread will get the job done if ducks are using the field. Scout it out, if ducks are never there or are not flying over alot, then find a new spot.
