Palmer Lake gave me 59 bluegill If you use just a hook and a small bit of power bait and cast it 4 feet of shore you will catch a ton of fish Anyone wanting to catch a lot of fish should go out there and catch up

I kill it with the fly rod at Palmer lake. Itís also a great place to teach a kiddo how to use one. There are a couple places that are back cast friendly. The beach near the playground and the north and south banks. It is a complicated lake to use the fly rod if youíre not familiar with roll casts, but it makes a great place to learn how to. Iíd bring a spingear for the kiddo though. Just in case.
I don't use bait but will assume any of those will work. For lures.. fly and bubble, small in line spinners and small jerk baits like the Dynamic HD and Rapala FO3 work well for me there. The in line spinners and hard baits are more for the trout.
if you're really wanting to catch a bunch of small bluegills, I would hit Sinton pond with tiny pieces of red wigglers. it's been a couple years since I been there but am willing to bet there's still tons of bluegill in there, albeit small ones.
Do a little searching you can find some video on the bluegill in Sinton.
Killed it at Palmer Lake today, me and the kiddos reeled in 33 sunfish/bluegill and 2 trouts. Thanks for the advice everyone. That might be our go to spot from now on. Redworms / Nightcrawlers 8 inch from the bobber worked out nicely.
