Land-and-water spreads are a productive combination.
"When running traffic for Canada geese, I like to set up water-and-land spreads whenever I can. Water seems to 'soften up' geese and they tend to work really well. A combination spread of sleeper shells, full-bodies, and floaters can be deadly. During times of freezing temperatures I like to run an 'ice eater' to ensure I have open water in traffic areas. Having access to open water when it's really cold can make a big difference in your success."
