      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'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

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      we cant figure out what they want in that lake. LOL

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.
