Another thought about working bream beds.
If you know you have located an active bed, try to work it from the edges of the bed first. I usually like to work it while sitting in deeper water than the actual bed. The reason for this is that most bluegills will head for deeper water once hooked. Shellcrackers usually run sideways and usually come up to the surface fairly quickly. In either case, you don't want to have these caught fish racing through the bed spooking the other fish that you might catch.
By working from the outside edges of the bed and working them while sitting in deeper water, you can minimize the amount of spooking of the other bedding fish and most likely catch many more in a shorter time!
Good luck and good fishin'
