I believe that there is a complete list of infested lakes on the DNR HSOforum.

Just about every lake in the metro has it so you are in luck. If you wanna get started fishing jigs I would start with shorter cast and heavy jigs (1/2oz min) and aim for pockets with pitches or flips. In more open areas between tight cover casting and reeling in jigs works very well. Be patient with this type of fishing because you can go awhile without bites then run into a nice pod of fish, good luck its fun fishing!

Thanks I'll give it a try, any type of jig you like the best.

Any jig will work that has a bullet shaped head as this will punch through the weeds the best and stay the most weedless

Pay attention to irregularities in the milfoil, points, turns, pockets, with a hard bottom underneath... Also transitions from straight milfoil to another type of weed... smile
