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.
