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

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
    • Rachelkate21
      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!
