Deputyking you will be staying in a GOOD general area for bream and shellcracker. If you are staying at the campground off of hwy 69, you will be right on the water. From your campground if you look to your right you will see boat houses that go all the way out to where the campground slue opens up into the main river. These boat house are very good for above average bluegill. The last 3 boat houses seem to be the best. If you fish these, keep your boat in 8 ft of water and fish in front of the boat houses. Concentrate on the outside structures of the boat houses. Another area you might want to try is the hump that is to the left of your campground. If you are standing on the bank and looking to the left there is a shallow slue that has a hump at the mouth of it. The hump is 4ft deep surrounded by deeper water. There should be some millfoil around this hump and shellcracker can be caught there. If these places do not pay off try this. Go out to the main river and go into Alreds Islands. You will want to go in this side of the big bridge that crosses over the main river 431 bridge. At the mouth of Alreds you will start to see bouy's that go all the way back to where Alreds marina is. Keep going in the creek channel that is marked and follow until you see the new ramp located off of of 431. This ramp is right before you go over the main bridge. Once you see the ramp, there is a Island and you will want to go past this Island about 50 yards. Here, you will find a visible roadbed that is 10 ft wide and very easy to see. It is about 75 yards off shore and runs parallel to 431. This roadbed is approximately 500 to 700 yards long. Fish both sides of this roadbed and here you should locate both shellcracker and bluegill. If you need some more help just let me know. Goodluck and wear those life jackets!
