    60 acres of logged out Cypress and black gum creek bottom. Depth is mostly 10-12 inches and always holds water- no way to add or take off water. Mucky silt bottom. No current to speak of but does slowly meander out to river. Has Frogbit, tons of duckweed and this yellow flowering plant. IMG_20171013_112426583.jpg IMG_20171013_112422038.jpg
    I'm looking for something that can be broadcast into the holes we've cut out that is a decent duck food. It's probably always going to be more of a loaf hole than a feed hole- just want a lil something to get em loafing where we want em to loaf. IMG_20171030_174506936_HDR.jpg

    Tough situation. Those coastal cypress swamps tend to have acidic water. Not sure many submergent aquatic plants grow in that water. Often the plant communities are very specific to those types of habitat. Unfortunately non-native invasives seem to find a way.
