Rated 5 out of 5 by fishnhuntn247 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bassmaster19999 Great Bait
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CHUCKSTER Good Shallow Water Bait
I've used the fire shad color to catch bass and redfish in the marsh ponds. I sweep the rod tip to make the bait move about a foot or two, then pause the bait. As I pause I reel in the slack moving the tip toward to the bait and repeat the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BubbaBoBob Very under-appreciated shallow water lure
I've used a 1-Minus and Baby 1-Minus for years when ever I want to change up in shallow water. Primarily using it for largemouth on weedy flats and smallmouth in shallow rivers/creeks. The Baby 1-Minus especially has produced great numbers when other people have been picking up only a few on spinnerbaits, topwaters, etc.
Because it does run so shallow, it can be worked near heavy cover without getting hung up. The action on this little shallow crank is big and violent for such a small lure. And also because of it's shallow running, you can really burn it, rip it, and pump it to produce a variety of attracting/triggering action and not worry about snags or messing up the action.
My personal best smallmouth came out of 2 feet of water on a rocky flat in a river on a Baby 1-Minus. And the best part, bass hit this thing HARD when they take it. Like they are trying to pull the rod out of your hands! This is definitely one of my go-to shallow baits.
Only down side is that the short bill and large treble hooks tend to hang on themselves at times. Switching out the treble hooks for slightly smaller ones helps this some.
