Hey Krazy , thanks . Are you using lining drills for water work , just like you would on land . This really helps the dog gain confidence . Use a white pole straight across a water way at first , mark the pile and send the dog on it's name the first time , then dead bird -back . Do this over a couple of days , then without marking pile send like a blind . Next step take pole away and repeat . Then do angle and of course longer land to water / water too longer land blinds . If you can after he nails it without help , move to another pond and waterways . It's a good transition to cold blinds that worked well for me . Hope this helps .
