that hit a freelined mulberry.
In addition, the fish are hitting a number of baits. All the fish mentioned above have been landed on such variety as sweet corn, maize, doughballs and mulberries. I'm also catching fish in a variety of spots. Once again, the totals mentioned above have been caught in at least 7 different spots. That shows that carp in RI are hitting all over the place. I'm also getting them at all times of the day. Mornings, evenings and even the middle of the daytime has been producing. The one thing missing in my fantastic July start has been very large fish. I've gotten nothing over 20 lbs., but I have landed many fish in the teens so no complaints from my end.
I know a lot of fishermen out there have time off from work during this holiday week. If you are looking to get out fishing, the carp bite is very good right now. In my mind, it is as good as it gets in July.
