Thanks for the nice comment on my report and thanks for this detailed report too. Glad you had an enjoyable and successful outing on the lake! Really appreciative that you gave the God's Tooth a workout! :-)

Thanks for the report, how fast were you trolling?

In response to your question about our trolling speed with the God's Tooth lure, we stayed in the range of 1.5 to 1.8 MPH in the lure configuration that has the hook attached to the "wide" end of the lure. That is the "fast wiggle" set up. I can only say I'm a huge believer at this point in the God's Tooth lure. Its every bit or more as good as advertised. Although we set our line depth on the down riggers between 25 and 40 feet, it seemed like we had the best luck this past Monday around 25 to 30 feet as that's where most of the fish were showing up on the fish finder. Once we began seeing fish on the Lowrance, we marked those spots and then trolled through them over and over again which proved to be very effective with the God's Tooth Lure.

Great day! Glad one came around after all those other trips. When were those two distinct feeding periods? Was 2-3 one of them?

To answer your question, we experienced our best bite late in our fishing day this past Monday. We had to stop fishing and head back to the dock site at 3:00 PM from the north half of the lake just when the fishing got really exciting using the God's Tooth lure. So yes, the best bite period was in the neighborhood of 2:00 to 3:00 PM. We wanted to fish longer on the lake, however we were bound by prior obligations.
