Preferred lines for salters...

I did most of my coho chasin' from a boat but want to do some beach hoppin' next time I get the chance. In fact there has been talk of a beach clave in 2003.

Anyway, I prefer to use a Rio deep sea or Cortland QD 325 grain line from the boat to cut through riplines and waves with herring, candlefish, squid, and other coho tidbits. The only exception is the use of a floating line for Leland's crazy poppers, man do those fish go nuts for surface action.

What do most guys use on the beaches when not using poppers, where the obvious choice is floating line? Does anyone use looped tips for instance? Shooting heads with clear intermediate heads maybe?
