It depends on what you are pulling.  Some baits run better slower (2.2) while others do fine around 3.0.  I try to keep it around 2.5 - 2.7 mph at the ball.  Speed at the ball is often different from SOG (Speed over ground, which is your surface GPS speed).  Some days though, they prefer a faster or slower presentation.  If you are doing turns, pay attention to if you get hits on your outside lines (which will be moving faster) or your inside lines (which will be moving slower).

Nothing under 2.2 at the ball if you’re running primarily spoons. I’m a big fan of running fast with long leads behind spinnies, and paddles. Keeps everything pulling hard while keeping your flies, meat, etc movingly they would at 2.3-2.5.

Does anyone know what the current is like in the bay?  If there is not much of a current, his SOG and speed at the ball will be close enough to not worry about getting a speed probe.
