I keep hearing about fuel in regards to trolling lures. Do these lures really create enough drag to make a noticeable difference in trolling GPH?

I haven't done much trolling, and no high speed.
I have a test setup to pull HST lures and measure the static drag. The 32 oz. cowbell pulled 11 pounds more at speed than my largest streamlined lure. OP said heís running 50ís, maybe not the best match with a big cowbell? The Bonita pulls pretty hard too but I canít measure it because of the swimming action. I think both are better suited for 80ís.

I am considering another go at the cowbells with some of the mini versions, any FHE?
