|I landed this good size mirror this morning|
on a freelined mulberry.
|The mulberry is impaled with|
a #8 hook and simply free-
lined under the tree that
is dropping them.
Fishing them is simple. These are freelined....no sinker, no hair rig. I use just a number 8 hook at the end of my monofilament line and impale the berry. If you want the berry to sink, you might have to squeeze it gently to make it more compact. Just flip it into the water under the tree and watch the line. If a fish picks it up, the line will shoot out. Set the hook and you should be on.
There is a small window of opportunity in the game of berry fishing. The mulberries might last two to three weeks and that's about it. So this mulberry fishing season is usually a short, but memorable one.
