Preferred body bait techniques.

On a tangent to Beaves thread, when you guys are pulling the body baits in the spring, do you prefer to use a bait that runs the desired depth without assistance, or do you prefer to put a lure where you need it by using downriggers and/or snap weights?

If you wanted to fish at 20ft down, would you rather use a bait that normally runs shallw, with enough drop weight to get it down to 20ft, or would you rather just use a bait that runs at 20ft on its own?

Starting to wonder if it is best to pick up husky jerks and a snap weight kit, or just get a good assortment of husky jerks and a good assortment of down deep husky jerks.
