Your pickup method depends on how concerned you are with cold break and hop matter in your fermentor. From what most brewers agree the cold break matter in an ale does not have any large negative affects, but the hop matter will impart flavor. If you lager, you should find a method to keep this out of the fermentor for many off flavor reasons.
Depedning on the bulkhead in your kettle you can buy or make your own pickup tube to collect wort from the side of the kettle a small distance from the bottom leaveing all of the boil matter in your kettle and out of the fermentor.
