Yes, absolutely! Just make sure you fertilize and lime the exposed soil (if no soil sample, 600 lbs 10-10-10 and 2000 lbs lime per acre) and plant the shortest time maturity variety and lowest ear on the stalk corn you can. You are in MD I see and the normal corn planting dates are middle April to mid May around there. Just make sure you don't knock any down or cut it since that is construed "baiting". As long as it's standing, you're ok. Check with your local seed/farm supply for best variety to plant.
Do you have birds resting, feeding or roosting on the pond during the season as the pond was, without any attraction other than the corn around it?
Sounds like a perfect set-up to me to plant corn as long as you can control the water.
There are some other things, like chufa (an underground nut normally planted for turkeys) that could be planted in another section that would be a good attraction for puddle ducks. Check out the web sites and research different plantings.
