Ponds can really be hit or miss. Look for food sources in shallow areas of the ponds. In my experience teal like lots of shallow water areas, .6inch -3 feet in my experience with more lean to the former than the latter.
Maybe you can get the landowner to watch them for you a day or two?

I apologize to those I have yet to offend. Wait just a little longer and I will get around to you too!!
