      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

I'm looking at taking a trip to Crookston within the next month or so to check out the school and the town. Just got a couple questions for the locals:

Is there much for houses/apts to rent near the school? I'm not a dorm kind of guy.

Would it be best to get ahold of a shopper or local newspaper to find rentals?

Is there a system to get ahold of current renters looking for roommates?

I realize if you're not in the school these are probably hard to answer. Just trying to get a feel for what to expect, it's coming fast! Any info appreciated.

I'm a UMC grad (Class of '95).

I lived in the dorms for 2 years and an apartment for the second 2. There are several apartment buildings within 1-2 miles of campus. Crookston has a local newspaper that I'm sure would be a good starting place.

I don't know of any system for people looking for roommates to use. Check with your advisor or at the student center when you get to campus.

UMC just built some new on-campus, "apartment" style dorms that look nice from the road.

Later,

I'm also a UMC grad (02)-

The on-campus apartments are not bad - I don't know anything about the new ones, but I lived in Lee Hall and it was alright. There is also low income housing duplexes that used to be available to students. They are on the east side of town, not far from campus.

the duplexes are a set-aside for migrant housing. If there are vancancies during the cold weather, then you may get in, but ya have to vacate come spring.

Well I got over to Crookston on Friday to get all registered for classes again for the fall. I looked at all the on-campus housing, but nothing really sounds too appealing. I just re-read this post and saw First Ice's reply about the low-income housing, which is what I wanted to ask more about. I didn't know anything like that was available, so if anyone has any further info on that I would really appreciate it.

Also, it sounds like maybe a storage rental would be needed to put my duck boat and all other gear in. Does anybody have any idea about storage units or have room for a boat in their yard for a couple months confused.gif Housing is my last decision now so any info would be great!

Contact the Real Estate Place in Crookston and talk to Tammy, she can help you find a place to live. I dont think they deal with the low income but i know they can help you find a place to live. Maybe we will see you around campus next year.

Shae-I am looking at something about $300-400/month, less if utilities aren't included.

Mike-Just for reference is that an actual storage facility number?

Thanks for the replies guys, again anything else that anyone has is all appreciated!

My place is going up for rent at the end of the month here, it is 275 per month and you pay electricity, its electric heat which can get expensive during the winter if it gets real cold but not too bad. There is also a shed on the proporty, you wouldn't be able to get a boat in there but you could put decoys in there and put a padlock on the shed or store your equipment in the basement. Call the real estate place if you want too look at it and tell them its the apartment currently occupied by Andrew Shae.

Good Luck

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
