|fishin10||I had the same issue up on Sturgeon Bay back in July, no matter what depth running lure, it did not take long for things to get fouled. Switched to drifting jigs and harnesses , same result,. fishing 10-30 ft of water. Lots of that green slimy moss and single floating weeds. That's why it's called fishing instead of catching.|

|FishManDan||You do realize those weeds I'm LSC end up in Erie don't you. I fish western basin and depending on wind they can be impossible. Fortunately after the holiday, tuna boats seem to start getting pulled out of the water for winter and lessen the harvest to float.|

|jfaisten||when they start in Lake Erie we generally go up in the Detroit River and drift along with the clumps and bottom bounce lead head jigs. Much less stressful than trying to keep 6 trolling lines clear.|

|brigeton||The floating weeds are bad in the inland lakes where I live after June. All you can do is try to find a area where they're not as bad. Trolling lines right behind the boat instead of on boards makes checking them a little faster and easier. Bottom bouncers and spinners are a little better because you don't have as much line out. Sometimes I give up Trolling and pitch jigs.|

Floating weeds can happen on any lake.
For myself, if I am troubled by such vegetation, I will simply move elsewhere to avoid the problem.
I have not found any way to effectively fish in such a situation, so I simply avoid the problem by moving - different spot on the body of water or an entirely different body of water.
As the saying goes: "Stuff happens".

This time of year on Lake St. Clair the floating weeds are a big hassle. Iím not talking about the little stringy weeds where you can put a snap weight release on your line to keep them from getting to your bait. Iím talking about big patches of weeds that will run down your line and kill your bait. Just wondering if those that fish Lake Erie and Saginaw Bay have the same problem this time of year?
