leech, I was down south. I haven't tried anything north of DL, there just aren't much for numbers around here. I know the river you fish has potential for fish to move in. I may need to go on a scouting mission in the very near future.... I'll let you know what I dredge up.

Dead,

I am looking at the goldeye vs mooneye in your pictures. I am seeing two differences

1: Goldeye looks to have a yellowish eye (hence goldeye)

2: Goldeye looks to have a split fin on the fin below its tail. Is this just a coincidence or is it a rule?

Are there any other differences?

Don't let the gold iris fool you. Yes, the goldeye have golden irises, and that's how they got their name, but mooneyes can also have gold tinted irises as well, as was the case with the fish on the Otter Tail.

The split fin is not a ID marker, that particular fish just had a split in the anal fin.

The biggest thing that distinguishes mooneye from goldeye, for me, is that the dorsal fin starts closer to the anterior (toward the head) than the anal fin on a mooneye. On a goldeye, the anal fin starts closer to the anterior than the dorsal fin.

    • Here is hoping for a dry October.
    • I didn't get the elm creek park hunt this year   I guess I will sit right outside the park and hope they chase them out again.
    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?
