Spinning Rod with some light line..do a drop shot.
I like to have 15lb braid with 10lb mono leader. The leader I like is about 8-10ft so I have extra in case the hook breaks off. Then I will usually use a 1/0 drop shot style hook and will nose hook a 3" fluke, stick bait, lizard, etc....and then usually for the distance between the hook and weight, I like typically 2'. It does depends on the cover and bottom composition too. If there is a lot of grass, I like to have the hook a little further up. If there isn't much cover, keep it closer to the bottom.
