Mann's Baby 1-Minus Crankbaits
Great Shallow Water Bait
This bait in grey minnow or brown craw is killer for sneaking up on bass in shallow water. I've caught a bunch of smallies in clear streams by casting this bait a mile upstream and retrieving over boulders and other cover. Also works great around riprap without getting snagged. Only issue is the front hook tends to get caught on the lip. I may try replacing with the next smaller size hook.

best lure for shallow waters
This is the greatest lure I've ever used. I had to replace my first one because I caught so many bass it pulled the paint off the sides. I would recommend this lure to anyone. They are a must in my tacklebox.

Best Shallow Wake Bait!!
This is an excellent crankbait for that 1-2 foot range. It will also just wake the service by keeping your rod tip high. By lowering your rod tip you can make it dive to around 2 foot. The Mann's 1-minus is my go to bait for fishing above weeds. It does an excellent job and the action is just awesome!! Big fish can't resist the Mann's in shallow grass! It also has some weight to it so you can cast it a mile and even on those windy days where those lighter crankbaits make for some unpleasant back lashes, the 1-Minus will not give you that problem. If you love fishing crankbaits and love fishing grass but can't find the right crankbait for that situation, get you some Mann's 1-Minus and you will not be disappointed!

I have great success with this lure around the spring, and have most success with the brown crawdad color. Catches a lot of fish with that color and the variations of it. One problem, I own several of these lures. The paint seems to melt and crack after a while and makes the lure look sticky and poorly painted. This doesn't stop the lure from catching fish though and definitely recommend this bait. Love the wide wobble and has very boisterous rattles! Great lure!
