Lake Elmer Thomas Fishing Report

Lake Elmer Thomas fishing report with Denese Freemen, WBT Co-Angler Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to go fishing on Lake Elmer Thomas with WBT Co-Angler Denese Freeman (who just won a Skeeter boat this April at Lake Lewisville Texas).

Under the watch of Mount Scott & Wichita Mountains, Denese and I headed out on her boat at the crack of dawn. Without a breeze blowing or a cloud in the sky, we had the perfect elements for a great day. The bass were jumping all around us, so we started out with top water buzzbaits but to no avail. We switched over to spinners, but again, no luck.

We then switched over to wacky-rigged Maniac Salt Sticks, 4″ Cinnamon Crawfish color and started hammering them. We caught so many bass, we lost count. Denese took me to her best good luck spot and I promptly landed this 4lber (click picture to enlarge).

If you haven’t fished Lake Elmer Thomas, do yourself a favor and go. Although small, the water is crystal clear and the mountains and wildlife are breathtaking. If you take your boat, please note that the lake is a “no wake” lake.

If you would like to keep up with Denese on the Women’s Bassmaster Tournament Trail, visit her site at www.DeneseFreeman.com.

Editor’s Note: Thanks Denese for all your hospitality and taking me out on your new prize Skeeter “Lizzy”! I look forward to fishing Lake Lawtonka with you next!!

Lake Elmer Thomas Bass

Avid fisherman and aspiring pro Mike G. sends us this report from Lake Elmer Thomas:

Spent the day today at Lake Elmer Thomas with my brother in-law Peter R. from California. It was our last chance to fish before his return, so we tried fishing a new lake that neither of us had fished before.

The bite at Lake Elmer Thomas was slow but was there. I caught two bass on the top but they were also chasing jigs in deep water. The hydrilla is a beast and makes the fishing tricky but the fish can be found at the edge of the grass on jigs, and worms.

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the report and picture Mike! Hope Pete had a great time. Wish my brother-in-law liked to fish…
