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.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
