      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 think it is a cross between both a pike and a muskie. However, I do think it has more muskie characteristics than northern characteristics. The tail, in my opinion, has more of a rounded tail that would resemble a northern pike. Muskies have more of a pointed tail. By a cross of both, I definitely do not mean a tiger muskie, but some other unknown type.

Pike.....

Lighter spots on a darker back, as best as I can tell rounded tail fins, and the coloration in the fins and the scales on the gill plate.

Definitely a Pike... tail fin is rounded and the color definitely belongs to a Pike... if you look CLOSER at the tail leading up to the tail fin, you can see a pattern that clearly belongs to Pike, not Tiger or Pure Muskie...

The only lake around Turtle Lake with any sort of muskie population is Big Moon. Lower Turtle Lake has a few migrants from Big Moon (meaning Upper Turtle could also have a few migrants), and Horseshoe has a few in it that the DNR has no idea how they got in (most likely illegal stocking). The last 3 I mentioned have maybe a handful of fish total in them.

And looking at the picture I'd say pike.

Google silver pike you'll find your answer. If I knew how to post pics I'd post a few identical to that one we have caught this year so far. BTW our state record Silvers 10#
