Weedless spoons are classic lures for enticing major-league strikes in such cover. While some soft-plastics are designed to skate over the top of the slop, weedless spoons are more versatile. They can slide over pads or snake through bulrushes; you can fish them just under the surface or a foot or two below it. Available in a variety of colors, these spoons feature a curved metal body and a single upswept hook, usually made weedless by a metal pin that extends from the lure's body to over the hook's tip. Tack on a soft-plastic or pork trailer to bulk up the offering.
