About .5 acre pond in south Louisiana.

Hard to tell without a good closeup picture of a single piece in a glass baking dish with a white background to get a good look at the plant.

It doesn't look like any type of grass that I know of.

maybe Southern Naiad?

Closes thing I could find to it myself. I’ll get that picture you asked for shortly. Thanks!

It helps quite a bit if you put enough water in the dish to submerge the plant. This allow it to "fluff" up and show its natural state. Taking photos of aquatic plants is pretty tricky...try some water in the dish and watch for glares that obscure the photo.

Looks like bushy pondweed. https://aquaplant.tamu.edu/plant-identification/alphabetical-index/southern-naiad/
