Default Old Hickory Vegetation

Does anyone know what kind of new vegetation is showing up on Old Hickory? I was out a little while ago and it was being blown around Drakes Creek. Kind of reminds me of what we called Cabbage in South MS.

This summer I caught some really good fish out of the hydrilla, but the size has went down and the numbers have went up.
