Gearing up for chum salmon

So the chum are finally in. Saw myself, and heard reports of some rollers in the lower river, and I'm looking forward to getting into some over the next month.

I'm looking for tips on what type of setup / water to look for.

Up till this point I've been catching chum in 18 inches to 3 feet of water,  doing the "long leader" thing. I'd really like to catch them with a bobber and jig, but i'm struggling with using a bobber/jig setup in that shallow of water.

Has anyone else had success in this shallow of water?

If so, can you explain what type of water, and setup you're using? Also, has anyone had chum follow a spinner?
