I cant tell the kinds of weeds their are in the lake?
I go out fishing and cant tell anybody what this kind of weed is called.
Is there a HSOforum that I can go to so I can identify different kinds of weeds?
If so can you give me the HSOforum. Thanks

BHH,
Post this same thing in the bass forum. I bet the moderator will know. Adam really knows his weed.
(As do most bass fishermen.)

Look in your fishing regs. Milfoil has thin, round leaves. There are anywhere from 12 to 21 per stalk. They kind of look like a centipede. Curley pond weed has crinkled flat leaves, and is pretty much a southern part of the state weed that dies out when the water temp reaches 70 degrees. Here is a DNR link that has all of the information on exotic species with a picture of the offenders.

Basspastor, the bass forum isn't the only forum I read! wink.gif

Another great option would be to go to a bookstore that sells college textbooks. Look for this book: Through the Looking Glass...A Field Guide to Aquatic Plants. Susan Borman, Robert Korth, Jo Temte. 1997.

It is a great field guide that has illustrations, descriptions, range, habitat, and a lot of other info.

Thanks, I also did a search and looked for a 1/2 hour and finally found a HSOforum that gave me some idea what each kind of weed looks like.
