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.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
