Stackers and sliders

Recommended Posts

I’ve heard some very productive captains make mention of importance of running the same spoon stacked (mag low standard high). I’ve heard most specify this tactic for early morning fishing with glow spoons, carbon14’s, etc - for first bite of the day. Usually chute rigger.

Question is: is it more effective to run a stacker with each spoon on separate rod, or a slider (with the standard spoon being the slider)? Also, short leads or long leads? Run these deepest?? If stacking, distance between the two on the rigger cable???

Are these even viable questions or is there a different technique that works different days or for different boats?

Mostly just less rods to deal with, if you want the spoon sitting in a certain area then stack it.. for browns and rainbows in deeper water if I’m fishing a spoon bite I’ll fish 3 downriggers with 3 sliders. I usually like 10-12ft leaders.. as long as your riggers depths are about 10ft apart you should have and problems running multiple sliders

This topic has been covered before ; I prefer stacking  [ fixed with an elastic band tied with a half hitch knot ] less chance of a tangle coming up !  We run a 6 ft. lead see no point to 10 to 12 ft. We mix eg. dodger/fly main line one spoon stacked .

Fixed sliders are the way to go. Haven’t used stackers in years.
