Don't make eye contact.
I WAS going to "exempt" all the canyon and slot reservoir guys...figured it'd ruin the joke.
You're not going to let 40 ft of gin get between you and a flippin' target, are ya?

Have tried putting a 3-4" piece of clear soda straw on your line? I've had some success with this...it holds the line away from the trebbles and doesn't seem to effect the lure or fish...Nathan

Never thought of that Nathan. I'm in the process of building another of the gliders with the front hook moved back about 3/8" and if that doesn't work I'll give your way a try.

I've built two new baits since starting this thread. One of them I moved the front hook eye back about 3/8" and the other one I placed a 1/4" X 1/16" round neodymium magnet behind the front hook hanger to hold the hook up against the belly. As soon as I can fish them I will let you know how they work out.
Thanks again everyone for your help. If these don't work I will be trying some of the other suggestions.

Hi there ,
Just browsed through briefly ,................ I'm pretty much surprised , that obviously nobody suggested using single strand wire leaders to work glidebaits properly without fouling the hooks into the line .
These leaders are essential for our local European glidebait pike fishing , .......they serve two purposes , .....preventing the toothy fish from snapping the line and also to prevent hook fouling .
You may attach such leaders with duo-lock snaps , ....or plitring provides a connection with even less play .
"American Fishing Wire" offers wire coils of different diameters to make your own leaders , .......also in bronzed "camo brown" color , .....such leaders often do not need to be made much longer than the bait itself , .......at least when targeting non-toothy fish only .
