Default Deep Water Bottom Fishing

I thought I'd try out some of the deeper spots today but I got skunked. I think that I just wasn't set up for bottom fishing in 200 feet of water. My tackle works well in the shallower water I'm used to fishing in but I think it's too light for anything deeper than 120' or so. Normally I like to drift when bottom fishing but that doesn't seem to work too well over deeper spots.

I wasn't able to find a bite on the shallower spots I hit on the way in either.

Any suggestions? Do most of you guys drift or anchor when bottom fishing?
