Default handlines for trolling

Does anybody have suggestions for a handline setup to hang off the stern cleat? Also known as a Cuban yo-yo, I think.

I have a friend who uses parachute cord-->planer-->lure (Clark spoon) and it worked well. I'd like to have more of a spread so that I don't have to use two rods for trolling.

Will just be cruising for mackerel, bluefish, and whatnot. How do y'all rig these from the cleat connection to the lure?

Wasn't sure where to post this, as this is an inshore/offshore question. Thanks for any help!

Whe I was a kid and we bottom fished with handlines from Destin they would always tie a handline to the back of the boat as we went out with a duster. They would tie a slip knot in the line. When the knot disappeared it ment we had a hit (usually a bonito) that we would use for bottom fishing.

I have a bunch of rods. I'm just interested in this style of fishing, I guess.

Caught some mackerel with a friend on these rigs while trolling a while back and thought it was a lot of fun. They also take up no space at all and I would have two or more extra rods that I could keep pre-rigged for other purposes.

IMO put a release on the planer and use it like a downrigger.
