The calls on the water tend to be a bit softer if the geese are resting, but if they are starting to get stirred up, they can start sounding pretty excited. I like a softer, quieter call over the water, and I try to do more contentment type sounds rather than the aggressive feeding sounds that you typically hear in a field. More moans, more soft clucks, I will throw in some hiccups or double cluck sequences here or there to grab their attention, but try and keep off them as much as I can. Lot of times just keep the call in the pocket on the water too... Works more than the call companies want you to believe!!!
