    No brush around it at all. It would be perfect for geese if it were full. Just hedge and cedar in the bottom that I drug in for th fish. Problem is we are in drought status and they are visible in the water.

    Went down today and pitched a few decoys into the open spots trying to get some ducks coming there.

    After the seasons close in February I am thinking about dumping corn in the water around the edges to try and imprint some birds for future years.

    Just looked at your pics again. Looks like the whole field is overgrown vegetation and location is close to the wood line. It's perfect ambush spot for predators looking for a quick snack. I just dont see geese feeling safe there to hang out to be honest. But what heck do I know. Hoping it works out for you. Throwing out corn will have no effect on imprinting a food source for future waterfowl. Unless ducks find it and you hunt them the next day and that would be baiting and illegal anyways.
