If I'm not casting at structure I'm casting as far as possible.
Usually about 25-35m.

Same here when in the bay. 25m or more.
 
No casting offshore, just drop and strip like bait fishing.   
Just one more cast

I cast in the direction of the drift so the plastic behaves naturally without being dragged.
Usually two hops but i do mix it up a bit.

Seems the older plastics like powerbaits are working better than the zmans that everyone likes so much. Must have something to do with the sink rate with zmans being so bouyant.
