Negreet Bay is directly south of Cypress Bend, it is a major creek that feeds into the main lake, there are several good places to fish in the bay, the first cove when you enter the bay is turtle beach and holds bass. The water is warming but the fishing was slow friday and saturday for us. Sunday we found some fish back towards the back of the creek in 3 to 5 foot of water. This time of year you dont need a depth finder, fish close to the bank out to about 6 feet and you should catch fish, if you have a 6 foot rod and stick it into the water and can touch bottom then your in about the right depth. The water has been cold, but is warming and the fish are moving up. I suggest using soft plastics, because everybody and their mother is throwing white spinnerbaits, which I like to do too, but we caught fish on lizards, creature baits and stickbaits with no hits on spinnerbait or rattletraps. Anything watermelon will work. I went to Negreet school and haved fished Negreet Bay all my life, if you fish hard enough, you will eventually find the fish, they are there.
