Fishing Gear & Apartments Part 2

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

So I didnt want to infringe on the other thread about drying off gear, and wanted to bring up another apartment issue that some may have solutions for.

 

Me and the girlfriend are looking into moving to an apartment in Quincy, MA for those of you who are from the area, and we have two options. One is not an issue, which is a townhouse style apartment.

 

The other option which she is leaning towards is more of an apartment complex. Many floors, lobby area, etc.

 

Being a canal fisherman, I have several rods (only one is a one piece, 10', the rest are 2 piece), along with a fishing bike, waders, wetsuit, boots, etc.

 

Has anyone lived in an apartment complex style like this successfully with fishing gear, and if so, how did you overcome the public apartment complex type feel for getting your gear into and out of the apartment? Specifically the bike with baskets?

Talk to your building Super. These are often pretty cool guys who will appreciate your challenge and work with you to find a common space they may keep buckets and a slop sink or something. Be careful going to the board. I'm on my board, and while I'd work with residents to keep people happy, the other 6 board members are more the "by the book" "rules" type" who are less likely to make an exception they may have to then extend to others.

Justin, I used to live in the Montclair Condos right at North Quincy Station. The reddish brown complex with green balconies. It has elevators so 1 piece is a no go there. But the staircases you can. It is wide enough. People bring in bikes to the elevators all the time. I recommend 2 piece rods if you go the elevator route. You might be better off in a townhouse.

I'm shooting for a townhouse, and OUTSIDE of the city limits. She's currently applying for jobs, and I just landed a new job in Boston. Commute has never been a problem for me, so im hoping she lands a job outside of the city and we can live in a townhouse :p
