Vandias Lake

4 posts in this topic

I live by Como Lake and went there to fish to dink around for a bit and I decided to explore the city for more lakes. Thats when I came across Vadnias lake and Sucker, i think there atatched. Any ways I was driving around the lake and saw a bunch of no fishing signs around the lake. I researched some ealry post and it sounds like a decent lake but I have a few questions. It sounds like you cant ice fish the lake which just sounds crazy, is this true? Also is it just strictly shore fishing during the warm season, not even canoes? I would love to hear any stories or expierences any body has fishing these lakes and maybe some tips. I'm always looking for new places to explore. one last thing. I ended up on 61 in white bear lake and drove by a lake that looked like it was surounded by houses but I didn't get the best view, but the road that it looks like you would take has a sign that says fishermans preserve, just wondering if that was for the lake or something else?

Vadnais and Sucker are both part of the City of St. Paul water system. Only shore fishing is allowed. Don't know if it's worth going there or not. The gates to gain access to both of them close at night and will soon be left closed for the season. No boats, canoes, wading or ice fishing and fishing is allowed only where posted. The other place you saw is I think, a private marina on the NW end of Bald Eagle. There is a public access on the opposite end of the lake. Bald Eagle gets a lot of fishing pressure year around.

Vadnias is usually open now during the daytime only. until it freezes closed. White Bear does have a couple of piers just off 61. One by the VFW.

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....

    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
