Just play with those pin brakes inside till you find a good setting for it.
One thing I didn't understand is your choice of colors for the baits? The baby bass might do OK but I don't know of many places over here that have threadfin shad? 3:16 makes a bunch of real good trout colors and I don't think there's a body of water on the west coast where they don't plant those nice little feeder trout for the bass to gorge on... hehehe I'll prolly catch some flak from the slimers for that comment.
I was thinking the same thing about the shad color but 3:16 is only making those 2 patterns in the baby wake size. If you step up to the wake jr. or the Wake you can have a much larger selection. I would have chosen the bass and trout patterns.
