      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 .

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.
