Mann's® Baby 1-Minus® Elite Series Crankbaits
This little crankbait has the widest wobble I've ever seen. It doesn't run very deep, about one foot or so but it brings fish to the top all day long.

Keep a few of thse handy!
I've used this bait a number of times, and had success. In my latest catch with it, I was in 3 feet of stained water (a day after 5inches of rain fell). Visibility was less that a foot, so I took out my Aurora Black Minus 1 for some flash. It was sunny, and I showed up nicely in the water.
I was using a Quantum Tour PT Burner model, so I decided to burn this bait as fast as I could for some great action. On the 3rd cast, I landed this 3lb Largemouth.
Not saying it's a go-to bait, but it's useful in the right situations. I keep at least 3 handy, in different colors. It has a nice wide wobble when burned, and the internal rattle is pretty loud!

First off, the stock hooks are garbage. Put some Owner stingers on them. If you use heavy enough Mono (not floro) you can wake them. Use lighter line and put your rod tip low, and it will dive a few inches. Awesome bait for schoolers and first thing in the morning. Also as a bonus, Ive caught saltwater fish on them too.

I've had the best luck fishing it paralell to the bank around some kind of cover, like rocks and i've even had good catches from along cat tails. spring, early summer are my best times, but more importantly listen to the fish. * TIGHT LINES*
the behavior of fish dertermines the speed if the fish are being picky crank it slower and vice versa. the best places to throw the lure is definatly in shallow water. Works well over gravel or stone, grass, wood and everything else. The best times are spring beginning of summer and fall
Seriously, you can crank it in any situation. Sunny, overcast, on rocks, over weed beds, fast or slow....it swims 1 feet under the surface. So, over weed beds this thing is amazing. The rattle is extremely loud. One things for sure, if cast this lure, hold on tight when you start retrieving.
I like to fish it fast like a spinnerbait. Over wood and around weeds. I caught a few bass last week (April 2) by reeling as fast as possible and making short pauses. Anytime there is no ice is a good time
