That's plenty of decoys and they will work. After scouting for them, find a cove that faces some open water in the lea of the wind and wait your turn. They move mostly on the low tide change b/ it's easier to feed, but will move with boat traffic anytime. They are pretty dumb birds and will decoy to most spreads. I don't target them but this is what I've seen.
