It depends for me... If the fish are boiling frequently enough that I can get an assassin or fluke on top of them I find that those work best. On the other hand, if the fish are boiling less frequently and are really spread apart I'll put on a spoon, jerkbait, or spook/sammy because it allows me to get the lure out there farther and faster. I'm usually using a spinning setup on a MH 6-7' rod and 6-8lb test when I really need distance. The trick is staying hooked-up at the longer distances. Mono tends to stretch alot and is hard to keep pressure on the fish. A braid or superline tends to work better in this scenario.
