Default Farm Pond Busting

I read an article about a couple of duck hunters getting permission and going out on some farm ponds to bust the birds.
The way they did it was an ambush style of hunting where they would sneek up on a pond with birds and when the birds took flight they popped a few. They also had a dog with them to fetch the birds.
Has anyone ever done this and how successful where you?
Thanks

they're not shooting them while they are in the water, they jump them into the air then shoot.
