Speed depends on how deep the top of the milfoil/hydrilla is, and what the fish want (their activity level). Last June Troy and I caught a few on one trip by cranking 1/2 oz Traps as fast as we could over some river ledge grass that was 3-5 feet under the surface. This time of year I usually try a moderate retrieve (not real fast, not real slow), and then speed up or slow down if that doesn't work. You just kinda have to experiment this time of year,but at times a fast retrieve is the ticket (surprisingly so).
