Commonly used are 3/4oz. Traps with trailers, Mirror Lures, and some folks occasionally use soft baits. Getting the bait in the strike zone (deep enough) is primarily accomplished by a combination of line type, line out, and boat speed;
type of lines: lead core, braid, mono.
line out: 90 to 100', 50yds, 50+yds.
boat speed 1.5 to 2.2mph mostly depending on what the fish want that day, and the type of line you're using. Some real old school folks still use monel wire and short broom stick rods. Like nightfisher stated earlier, there's more to it than just dragging some lures. Hope to be out there soon. ARRIVE ALIVE!!!
