Yes you can fish Senkos and soft jerk baits deeper. Drop shot them. Or rig them weightless on a EWG hook and let them fall in or next to trees or through suspended bass. Senkos are loaded with salt and sink slowly but alot faster than a Super Fluke. No additional weight needed for a Senko. I stick a 3/4 inch piece of nail into the body of a Fluke to get it to fall faster.

A "Sammy" is a Lucky Craft topwater "walk the dog" type bait (similar to a Zara Spook but much more detailed and expensive)

Its not necessary to mark fish when drop-shotting. There are a dozen ways fish can be down there and not show up on the graph. That being said, I do like to see an occasional fish on the graph in the area where I'm drop shotting. In general baitfish schools on the graph are good because there's bass nearby most of the time. They are not necessary though and at times its best to fish away from the baitfish schools. You couldn't cast a d-s rig with the bait 10' up from the weight, or at least I couldn't. You could swim a d-s rig thru or above a suspended school of bass. Cast it out, let it fall a bit and reel it in. Bass are built to feed looking up, but they will follow a d-s rig down to the bottom on the fall. (And visa versa they'll hit it when you're reeling up.)

Slow rolling a spinner bait deep, it is good to be in contact with the bottom as much as possible while keeping the blade turning slowly.

No! Its my fault Franklin! I'm sorry. Really. Next time I'll keep my post shorter so you won't fall asleep in the middle.

(I know d a would disagree)
What? Me disagree? Am I a curmudgeon? Hell yes bass will feed up more than chase something to the bottom. But I've seen them follow baits to the bottom on a graph.
