New to the area and heard Benbrook has Hybrids and Sand Bass in it. I fished it the last 2 days caught a few small Sand Bass on slabs no Hybrid action. Was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. Any help would be appreciated.

I think the guys are using live shad to get the hybrids but I'm not an expert . I do plan on trying to look for them more in the coming weekends. I do know the crappie are biting prettying good. I found them from 8-12 ft around structure last weekend.

Welcome aboard!!!
Benbrook is a fishing hole of many and favorite of few!!!!!
I fish it quite often and get licked as well. What puzzles me is what works on other lakes does not work here. Why idk. But personally i do best with live bait. And latly learning i have to match that as well.

There are some guides that work benbrook and will probally give advice as well, but yes there are some real good fish in there!!!!

Ps watch the weather bb is really bad in the wind!!!!! I mean its gets scary bad!!!

Been fish BB about 14 years when you can get on it. My wife,Grandsons, son-in-law, friends and I have had good luck and bad. Shad is the best bait for Hybrids and sandy's. Most time you can get it at the aireators over by the day. They move around a lot and just because you mark them doesn't mean you can get them to bit. Points, humps and sometimes on the tree lines are good places to look. Dan is a really good guide, but just like everyone that fishes BB, he has bad days. When I fish for crapie I fish in trees that are close to deep water. Right now be real careful. There is lots of trees that are just under the water. Just because you see someone running 60 mph over a cove doesn't mean it is clear.
My son-in-law guided on BB for a while. He has since moved his guide service to PK. Bigger fish and more water. If you want a trip there PM me and I will give you his number.
welcome

Dan took my steps son out on his 5th birthday. What a great trip. This was his first fish to catch other than perch.

Welcome to TFF. Good Luck on Benbrook. It is the closest Lake to my home but I don't fish it as much as I should. They are catching some nice fish in that Lake. Just hang in there and learn the lake and you will find out where the fish are.
