I would downsizing your gear. Go with a smaller flasher or dodger or even straight bait this late in the season.

I only use double deep 6. And to get down to 25' going between 2mph to 3mph, I only do 30 pulls. The math is pretty easy if u do pulls in multiples of 10. If your line is about 30 degrees from vertical, multiply the amount of line out by 0.9 for your depth. And for 45 degrees, multiply by 0.7.
Huh. When I go 2-3 mph, my line is at a 30 degree angle to the water surface, not 30 degrees off vertical. If I let out 30 feet of line, my bait is down 15 feet (definitely in the strike zone out at HMB).

I use the biggest dd6 model, 7oz #2. And the cosine of 60 degrees is 0.5. So the math works for 60 degrees also. But my line is never that far back.

Ah, gotcha. I use the smaller 7-oz version. Makes sense that your line would be closer to vertical with more planing surface.
