      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I beleive what you have there is a Cisco. In some areas people call them Tullibee. Either way, same fish. There not much for eating but make great cut bait for catfish.

I was gonna say skipjack, too. We used to catch them all the time when I lived in Nebraska. They can be fun when you find a school of them, and they make top-notch cut bait.

ralph, i believe you are right. indiana does have lake whitefish, but i could not find anything about cisco in indiana

as for the species,

the mouth is to bass like to be a cisco, whitefish, or any shad i know of.

im sure its some type of herring, most likely a skipjack, since the mouth is very bass like, though alewife is a possibility as well (but the mouth seems to big for an alewife).

my guess, definately a skipjack

It actually looks like a herring or a whitefish to me. We catch herring all the time through the ice on Lake Superior and some whitefish on Lake Gogebic during winter months. With both the Herring and the Whitefish just like you said scales galore, it is a soft or firm fish?
