|Here's a 10 lb. mirror carp landed today on|
a freelined mulberry.
Carp go nuts when feeding on mulberries. Most of these fish are coming off the spawn, and they are hungry and on a feeding binge. This morning I found about a dozen fish feeding under a mulberry tree. These fish were competing for any berry hitting the water. For the carp fisherman, it takes just a simple flip of a freelined mulberry. And, as soon as the bait hits the water the nearest carp hones in on it like a heat seeking missile rushing to grab the offering before any other fish can get to it. It's just too easy. Think about it....you go to an online bait store and have pages and pages of various prepared baits, flavored corn, artificial baits, method mixes, etc., and here I am just plucking a berry off a tree for bait and the carp are fighting for it. Wow, really too easy.
