Stick Marsh/Farm 13 guide recommendations?

about 5 yrs ago me and 2 buddies chartered Hugh Crumpler but have just found he passed a few yrs ago.
Time to bring the SIL and daughter for some big bass.
Soooooooooooo, looking for a different guide that is hopefully AT LEAST as good as Hugh, because he put on fish 2 days in a row and we wore them out!
NOW its up to y'all, who do we hire?
many thanx
Trapper John

    Forget Stick Marsh...HeadWaters is on the same access road 2 miles from SM and is the hottest lake in the State Right Now. Opened for motorized boats in August 2020. 9/10/12+ Lb bass regularly caught. 5-7lbrs common. I've been fishing there since December. At least 20 bass a day. Guides are on it's facebook page. Check it out.

    HW is what SM USED to be. Hydrilla, Floating mats, Reeds. Flipping/Punching paradise. Timmy Horton has a show about it on Pursuit Channel now. Rolan Martin was there filming..so were some of the MLF pro's. Bring your heavy gear.
