Property Help in Superior,Wisc.

10 posts in this topic

I was made a offer to buy 6 lots from a friend who purchased the lots in the 50s.He passed away few weeks back,and I was informed I was his frist choice to offer this to.

They are on Birch Ave,which is 1 Blk. east of Catlin & Belknap then north 3 Blks by 12th. I dont have all the info yet but I'd like to offer a fair price to his sister thats not to much for me,She's 72 and not much money,so I dont want to burn her and if their to much for me then I could at least help her get a fair price.

So can anyone give me a price range of what lots are going for in that area? These lots are unimproved,their the same as when purchased in the 50s.Could I also get info of what the area is like(the neighborhood I lived south of Duluth for a few years in the 80s)So any and all info would be appreciated. THANKS

I dont plan on driving up till open water

One thing you could do is call a realtor and inquire about lots for sale in that area. Ask for a general price saying you are looking to build or something.

You could also contact the city or county and find out what price they are being assessed at.

The bite has been good you must move from the others. If you now what I mean just get away 100 yards and you will do fine. Do not limit your self to others just move and they will bite. Good fishing to you all.

As mentioned by Powerstroke, you can get the taxable value of the lots from the Douglas County Assessor's Office if you have the legal description of the lots. Taxable value runs below market value by at least 10 percent in most cases, and more in others, but it'll give you a starting point. I find the $150 per lot very hard to believe.

Have you tried getting the tax info from the Douglas Cty website? I'd post the link, but would probably get in trouble. I went there and found a property look up. It says they will tell you the assessed value.

$150.00 sounds low, but it would depend on the lot size. Hopefully it's not a wetland. Good Luck.

      Dad and I fished this past Saturday and Sunday with portables and saying the fishing was slow would be an understatement. Between the 2 days we hit the mud flats pretty hard and stayed very mobile. Didn't even set up a house during the day because it was so nice out. We fished the mudflats from East Flat down to Blue Jug, over to 8 Mile and back up to Matton Flat. The day bite was very tough, we would mark fish but they wouldn't want much to do with it. We picked up 3 eyes Saturday morning with the biggest being 17" then picked up only 3 more during the day. They only seemed to hit our dead sticks with a shiner on it. We used mainly VMC gold perch tingler spoons and flutter spoons without much luck jigging. On Saturday night we had a sleeper rented from Twin Pines Resort and our house was in 20'. We had 6 bites throughout the night with a bigger fish breaking off and a couple smaller ones being caught. We really had to give them a lot of time to inhale the shiner. On Sunday we went back out to the Mud Flats with little confidence and the fishing was pretty slow again. Didn't hear many good reports from this weekend, not sure if it was the warm weather along with the pressure system or what.

      I think your best bet would be the narrows on Pelican. That can be pretty good crappie and walleye area. I usually fish it a couple times earlier in the season. Otherwise closer to Battle Lake you could give South Turtle or East and West Lost a try.

      I thought Clitherall was pretty good but never fished panfish down there.  I fish mainly the Perham/DL area.   Panfish have been very skitish as of lately.  We have been using mainly 4mm and 5 mm jigs for crappies but the panfish are wanting 3 mm jigs.  Best luck has been with a horizontal shapped jig tipped with 2-3 wax worms (depending on hook and wax worm size) very lightly jigged.  Most of the action has been once they appear is to reel up above them 5-8 feet then slowly drop down stopping 1-2 feet above them and twitching the jig LIGHTLY.  Anything with a "GLOW" has been killer for paints.  The lakes I've been fishing have almost a foot of snow and the water was merky prior to freeze up so even though the sun is up I'm still hitting the jigs with the UV Light and the fish are instantly reacting.  I've been targetting deeper holes and finding them in that 20-30' mark but I've heard some reports that they have started coming back up into the shallows and hitting the green weeds again.  Crappies right away this year were liking the 5 mm jigs tipped with a wax worm and soft plastic suspended but they have started preferring smaller jigs also.  Hope this helps you some.

      Caught a few walleyes on o'dowds this weekend. Was marking a lot of fish on the bottom but very skidish and not willing to bite very well. Anyone else have any luck on o'dowds?
