The issue of drag settings is one that I watch as well. I had been told by experienced troller to have some give in the drag, so as not to rip hooks out but it also is important if you snag a lure. Had that happen last summer, where I was in 8 to 9 feet of water, running a lure about three feet down when I snagged a rock point that I had not seen before. Line was down almost to the backing before I got completely stopped. Had I not had some give in the drag, line, lure or rod would have snapped.
