Depends on water depth and what you’re running. In the spring I’ve had spoons stacked 5 ft apart in shallow for Browns. In the summer I stack them further apart in deeper water. If I’m running a plug above a flasher in the summer usually 20 ft apart so I know they don’t tangle. Spoons above a flasher, 10 ft.

This is my basic approach too. Most of the time I run sliders instead though.

Just remember to lower a stacked rigger slowly, so the lines don't tangle.

Commercial trollers in the North Pacific Stack a dozen clip on lines to their downrigger cannonballs cable. As their cables come up they hand line the fish in. This can be viewed on YouTube.

I only been fishing Lake Ontario for four years so still a rookie, but something that worked for me in June/july for kings while fishin deeper water was stackin my rods 20ft apart and putting a spoon on a cheater 10 ft above each rod where i clipped to rigger cable. Not having a fishhawk this gave me the ability to cover 40ft of the water column on one rigger. Worked well early season but come August i couldnt buy a hook-up that way on riggers. Members here told me sometimes “less is more” and they were absolutely right. I caught more fish with one rod per rigger then two rods with two cheatere attached.
