About all I use for channels right now is a thill slip cork, #6 or #4 treble and my home made dough bait.
Once the fish go deep I will go to a no cork set up and fish tight line straight down off the boat about one turn off the bottom or where ever the fish are showing on my DI. For deep water bank fishing I use the Santee rig and float the bait about 12" off the bottom. Doesn't hurt to have multiple setups and fish them all at once to see which are producing. Don't be afraid to fish right against the bank either. Fish tend to run the banks shallow when feeding.

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
