Off hand, at 2mph in 18-30fow I would use at least a 2oz. BB, but adjust the length of line out between the 18 and 30 fow or go heavier. I prefer only enough line out to produce a 45 degree angle with your line and the water. Let the troll speed and depth dictate what size BB you need to achieve that 45 degree angle. Thats just my 2 cents when trolling with 72" long harnesses.

Troll another harness high....straight back, 150'-200' of line if you have it. nice to have another bait run thru an area after all the others just in case.
