Why not tie the second decoy to the back of the keel of one of your other decoys? If there is a breeze at all, they should stay pretty well spread apart.

In super calm days, I've also just tossed decoys out with no weight. Any surface weeds will keep them in place.

Interesting,

what have I not used smile Large bolts- washers - tied to another decoy - stuck a stick in the mud and tied.

Should have put it around my hunting partners leg and told him to be really still smile
