Default Spinner depth chart for 2mph..?

Your running spinners at 1.5mph, to make it easy lets say they are all 80 back on a 1oz (15ft), 2oz (23ft), and 3oz(35ft). Then you decide to switch one side to cranks and bump up your speed to 2.0mph. About how much additional line should you let out on the spinner side to get back to the same depths you were running while going 1.5mph..?
I realize that shorter leads, and heavier weights will require less additional line out and vice versa, but is there a general percentage or rule of thumb?
I dont have an inline weight chart for 2mph. I have 50/50 method, also read somewhere that a 2oz's at 2.0 mph is 1 foot of depth per 4 feet of line but dont know if can trust that info, and its only for 2oz. I run inline rednek weights so 50/50 snap weights isnt going to work to efficiently for us.
Im just looking for a general idea so im not wildy over/under estimating anything.
If i had to guess, this is what it would look like. Am i close? Still not deep enough..?
@2mph
1oz- Drop back to 103 to get (15ft)
2oz- Drop to 92 to get (23ft)
3oz- Drop to 85 to get (35ft)

Any input is appreciated. A 2mph chart would be great. Thx

Go spend some time and make a chart. It will be better than someone elses because it is on your boat and equipment.

Also depends on line. My program states 30lb line
I also run harnesses slower 1.6-2
1 oz 100 ft. back gets me to 16ft
2 oz 77 ft. back gets me to 22 ft
3 oz 83 ft back gets me to 36 ft

But prefer to stay slower. If your up around 2 add 10 foot for the 1 oz. 6 for the 2 oz and 4 for the three oz. Should be real close.

Every thing I have read and do is:
2oz only

1.0 -1.4 speed, 2 oz is 50/50. 80 back would put you at 40 ft. 2:1

1.5-2.0 speed, 2 oz is 3:1 100 back would give you 33 ft. 3:1

Does anyone one else use this? Does this seem right?

I use inline #. I also use the redneck chart for a guide, but I belive Kgone said those depths on the chart are a little shallow.
Craig at Erie Outfitters told me to run the 2oz to make things a lot easier when running inlines in the lorain area.

Lets hear some imput on this.

Hey Moke. The gaps in those formulas are 0.5mph increments. As precision trolling states, inline weights are VERY speed dependant. So maybe try and break it down a bit more. Rednek states that 65 back on a 2oz is 20ft @1.5mph. Kgone says they are shallow charts, so lets say its about 22ft. That would be darn close to your 3:1 ratio for 1.5-2.0mph, but leaning more toward the 1.5mph side imo. As you get up to around 2.0mph i feel like you would work up to around a 4:1 ratio. I feel like the change between 1.5 and 2.0mph in this specific case could be around a 5-6 foot depth difference.
So in this case a general estimate would look like this.
1.5mph would be 3:1 (22ft @ 65 back)
1.7mph would be 3.5:1 (18.5ft @ 65 back)
2.0mph would be 4:1 (16ft @ 65 back)
Anyone have any input on this?

Obviously the ratios will start to change quite a bit once you get into the longer leads. Im guessing somewhere after 100+ft of line. But for mid range line sets, i think these can be very accurate.
Lets try to come up with some formulas like this for 1 and 3 ouncers. Any input is appreciated.

Let us know your opinions. thx

I made an excel spreadsheet and added an extra 20% for every 1/4 mph over 1.5 and subtracted an extra 20% for every 1/4 mph under 1.5 from the redneck chart and made my own quick reference charts. It seems to be reasonably accurate, maybe not 100% perfect, but it has been helping us dial in depths a lot quicker since we started using it.

I use the 30% rule as a guide, the resistance for colorado's is a lot as you speed up. I did a test one day with a 1-lb gag gift my cousin gave me and tried to put and keep a #6 colorado on the bottom at 44ft at 2.4mph. Yes you can get it there but as the blade resistance builds it continued to pull the weight off the bottom even after 125ft back.

Good luck to anyone who spends the time to make a chart!
