depth
I fish Tensas oxbow lakes about 100yds. wide and 7ft. deep. We fish about 30-50yds. from the bank. Early in the morning they will be 5-7ft. deep. As u get to mid morning and the wind picks up they move up to within about 2ft. of the surface. Low oxygen is a big problem in summer and a breeze ruffleing the water increases the oxygen in the water making them feed more.(I think)lol

correct speed
Since few lakes in north La. are very deep, to me, correct speed is more important than depth. I use 10ft jig pole with 8lb stren and 1/32 ounce jigs. I hold one pole in each hand and one laid off the bow with 8-10ft of line out. The easiest way for me to judge correct speed is to keep my line at 45degrees or less. There is a fine line between strolling with feel and simply trolling.
