My spread consists of a spreader bar and pusher on each of the two flat lines, clipped tight to the transom and close-say two waves back in the wake. The distance is nominal depending on sea conditions, and I may drop them back or reign them in a bit in order to get just the right enticing swimming action I'm looking for. I drag ballyhoo on the left and right long positions, about 6 waves (100-feet) back, and shotgun another naked bally real deep, say 9 waves or about 150 feet back. This usually brings 'em up from the depths and proved successful for me during the 2008 HOI tourney. I nailed a yellowfin tuna, a white marlin and a total of 18 Mahi. Not the most spectacular catch, but there were many larger boats competing, with paid crew, who came back fishless. So relative to the action during the tournament, I did well.
