    how to deal with weeds

    Hey guys,

    I just bout a house on the lake and come to find out its only 2' deep by my dock and there are a ton of underwater vegetation about 100 years out from shore. It was so bad it stalled the ski completely and i had to gt off and unclog the pop and swim it out to deeper water before starting.

    Is there any way to alleviate this? maybe a certain grate or screen?

    Remove the vegetation. Its your house so its worth the effort clearing a few meter wide "canal"

    I pulled some 2 weeks ago and its already filled in. No way I can do 100+ yards of it.

    friend of mine uses this at his house canal/dock area. takes some effort but cuts it at the mudline. only issue is that it leaves it floating in the water and you have to go clear it out. other than that, works well

    That thing works great. Gives you a work out also.

    Better check with DNR first.

    DMR/DNR probably could care less about weeds/marsh grass in your own slip. They dont like it when you tear out marshes entirely and turn it into a waterway. LA/MS DWF/DMR only say you cannot remove marsh land masses unless you rebuild them elsewhere (permit required)
