I add a snap weight. 7’ deep per one ounce at 50’ up the line.

Without weight a spoon will go 6’ deep with erratic speed. Add a 1oz weight and your down to 13’ or so. Seems to work.

Depending on how deep I am fishing, it varies.  If the browns are coming in tight and really high, I run a 1/4 ounce split shot 6' from the stick bait.  If I'm running 20-30 and the browns are coming down a little bit, I run 1 ounce 50' back, clip on the weight and put it out another 50' - 75'.

Northport nailers spoons have a unique bend to the blank that allows them to dig into the water and do not require split shot to sink. The 3.25” orange ice glow gold blank is the best lure for spring browns in my box.

Once I get deeper than 10ft. or so, I sometimes flat line a casting spoon like a Little Cleo or a Krokodile, or a Rapala countdown minnow.  They will sink on their own a few feet without  needing weights.

An added bonus of running split shot or a rubber cored weight in front when running flatlines, is it helps to keep weeds and other crapola off your lures

You can set up 3 color cores and use bands directly to the lead. The 3 color gives you more options, haven't had a problem with bands and lead.
