      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 .

Redhorse ID

Recommended Posts

My best guess is Silver Redhorse. It would be nice if that dorsal fin was fully upright as it appears to be slightly laid back.

If it was a golden, it was a MONSTER

I'm gonna have to say silvers on both of the first two. And for sure that last one is a white sucker. Maybe someone else with more experience identifing redhorse will chime in.

The first two are definetely golden redhorse. The dorsal is concave. The silver has a convex dorsal. Besides that, the mouth and head structure is totally different. The silver has way bigger lips that face more downward than the fish in the pics and a larger head. I got a second opinion from a very reliable source, and he agrees. Nice golden!

I'd say a silver, based on the fact that they have 14-15 dorsal ray spines while a golden has 12-13. The dorsal fin in not spread enough to tell if its concave or convex.

Definetely not a river, they have a red fins, like a shorthead, but a larger, blunt head with larger lips.

silver and a white sucker. nice catch.

I counted 15 rays on the dorsal fin, hence a silver. I've caught several silvers that had dorsal fins slightly concave and looked similar to a goldens. Golden Redhorse have either 12 or 13 rays on their dorsal fin.

I take my statement back. After reading the other replies, I am counting the dorsal spines. Although they are hard to count exactly, I am seeing between 13-15. That would make it a silver. If there are more than 13 that is.

I don't have the experience dealing with these fish to confidently identify them either... A little help?? Top is from the Cannon River and bottom is from some St. Croix backwater.

    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
