The Inside Scoop: Mann's Tidewater Mid 1-Minus is a buoyant lure with a big body, angled lip and saltwater hooks, ideal for redfish, seatrout and snook. "The motion of the Mid 1-Minus creates an X shape, almost like a crab scuttling across the surface," says Mike McPherson, director of operations at Mann's. The more perpendicular the lip, the larger the wobble, he says. "Our baits have at least a 75-degree lip. It's not so much about depth, but about the wobble." The best conditions to cast the Mid 1-Minus are in the extreme shallows during a day with overcast skies or when fish are feeding toward the surface. "The vibration of the 1-Minus, nicknamed 'The Egg,' is natural in its motion — just what game fish are looking for," says McPherson.
