Fishing pole works for me

I have used a large truck inner tube and chest waders for this very purpose over the years- you will need to use some type of straps, such as the type used in boat winches to create a seat to leave your hands free for paddling or shooting. The tube can be transported flat and carried in to your spot, but you will also have to back pack a small bicycle pump to air it up once there.

Use a small raft or tube that fly fishers use for long trips and chest waders, or use a kayak or Canoe.

Use a guide service with dogs and a boat.

Fishing rod and a large floating rapala gets the job done. Just cast and snag.

Borrow a canoe and just hunt out of it. That way you can get to the downed birds and won’t have to worry about it.

I had the same problem once, but I ended up taking out a black inner tube…so every time i got one i would have to paddle out there and get my duck. Worked every time.
