|Mulberries can come|
in pink, white, and
purple colors. Carp
just love them!
|This fish was landed this morning|
on a freelined mulberry. Use a
small hook like a size #8.
Freelining is your best bet to fishing mulberries since you want a delicate presentation. Tie just a small hook (#8) to the end of your line. Then impale a ripe mulberry. Flip it out to where the carp are feeding and watch the line take off. Simple, yet very effective.
I landed my first carp on a mulberry this morning as I got a fish of around ten pounds. I also had several other big ones on that I lost. Losing fish is part of the game when fishing mulberries. Freelined baits just don't offer the same hooking effectiveness as a hair rigged bait.
