As the title suggests, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a weedless surface lure for bluegill? Problem is, I have only spinning reels, so fly fishing baits don't help me. It'd be useful when the bluegill are in a weedbed, where my typical panfish lures like small crankbaits, jigs, and roostertails don't work. I figure the weedless part might be especially tough to find since with their small mouths, I don't know how you'd hide the hook in the lure to make it weedless but still be able to catch the bluegill. At the least, I'd like any suggestions on just a surface lure for bluegill that would work on an UL spinning setup.

Foam water spiders. One of the best surface baits ever for me. Any color, as long as the legs jiggle.

Chaunc hit the nail on the head... Nick was hammering the big gills at Portage earlier in the week with them. Black body w/ green legs was hot.

When I lived in Oregon many people used fly fishing flies on a spinning rod. They would use a bobber to chuck it out where they wanted.
