I have done better fishing cabbage that has small amounts of coontail mixed in than any other type of weeds..... 6-10 feet of water.

I really like cabbage and big Boulders together.

What's your experience ?

Larger weed beds/shore lines or smaller weedy bays ?

Same! I agree. Combo of cover is good. Weeds and wood, or weeds and rock, or rock and wood, combo of weeds (coontail and cabbage)... stuff like that. And Big chunks is ok, on the idea bigger stuff hold more fish...... but smaller is easier to manage and sometimes more productive. My 2-cents....

Milfoil all day everyday.

Tobacco cabbage is right up there as well, but harder to find.

Plain old broad leaf cabbage just does not seem to hold many fish where I am.

Clasping-leaf Pondweed is my pref. any day! We used to call it Red tip but I just looked it up.

GRome likes whacky rigging weed... Some spots on midlake V were missing the lush cabbage from a few years ago. Or the are way behind.

I think the high water we had slowed down some of the weed growth. But it's mostly there now.

The Bays west of Retreat Lodge and up into the Narrows are GOOD weed...s.....
some places the weed growth is behind due to high water and later than Normal Ice
Out.
How's the weeds north west of Pine Island ? Love that area... The Chicane Rocks !

Fish on the chain where I live like cabbage but because of how dark the water is it doesn't grow much beyond 6 ft. Also, seems like the last two years we have lost a lot of cabbage. Don't know if we have picked up a bunch of rustys or if it is a cycle.
