JT, what has worked for me is to leave the mojo in the "runway" between some decoys. On big water I go with at least 2doz with feeders on the upwind side of the spread, leave about 20 yds of open water with the mojo in the middle, then another dozen or so down wind 20 yards from the mojo. I like having a big slice of open water where my shooting zone is...
If you're using teal decoys, another thing you want to remember is that they are normally feeding in the very shallow water- I see you had them set out a ways. Put them closer together right on the shoreline. You need to splurge and get a few more decoys, at least a dozen so you can thicken it up a little more, especially once the bigger migrations start to occur (if ever). It is very difficult to bring in ducks over decoys when there are piles of live birds rafting up everywhere.
As far as the wind, I've had much more success quartering downwind than with it straight at my back... Gives the birds a little less of a look at me.
