North/East Metro Lake Question

10 posts in this topic

The family wants to head out this afternoon for a leisurely boat ride and maybe some tubing, but my wife won't get in the water if it's "pea soup".

I'm in the Blaine area, can anyone give me an idea of a lake that is relatively clean right now?

ole matty is on with that pick. White Bear is about the cleanest lake out there right now and for a leisurely boat ride it can't be beat in the north east metro area. There is plenty of area to tube out there as well. If you guys want to park it for a bit and get out to swim, the little bay on the south east side of the big point is a pretty nice area to get out and play. It is usually protected from the wind as well.

Lake Elmo is clean also. (At least it was a while ago).

WBL has a speed limit on the lake so keep that in mind. I can't remember what it is (40 MPH maybe?) but they patrol that lake pretty often.

We tried WBL it was very FULL, I believe the speed limit out there is only 30 MPH but whatever it didn't matter. We went over to BE instead, plenty of parking left and we had a good time.

Thank you for all the replies.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
