|The hot weather is here, but the carp fishing remains productive. This is one|
of many landed this morning. Plastic corn or combo baits of plastic corn/ maize
on the hair rig has done the trick. Carp adapt quite well to any weather.

|I landed this 5 lb. mirror two days ago|
on maize and a pop-up fished on
a hair rig.
|I landed this 10 lb. mirror today using|
freelined maize fished right on top of
a bait pile close to shore.
I went out this morning locally for a few hours. I landed 4 carp, all mirrors. They ranged from 5 to 15 lbs. A couple of days ago I went out and fished in the morning again. Landed 5 mirrors up to 10 lbs. So, while the action has not been hot and heavy like the weather, it has still been good. It's the dead of summer and the fishing is productive. I'll take it!

|A hooked mulberry is ready to go.|
|This high teen mirror was caught a few days|
ago on a mulberry.
I've been fishing mulberries for the last ten days. I've landed good numbers of carp up to 25 lbs. while freeling them in various spots here in RI. So easy to do. Simply tie a #8 hook onto the end of your line, impale a berry and toss it in. Most likely a carp will rise up from the bottom and grab the berry as it hits the water. One note here. The carp get wise to this game very quickly. The wise ones will figure out which berry has a hook in it and ignore it. Others will scatter when a fish is hook knowing something is "fishy" with this scene.
