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.
