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.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
