    Default Heads up mullberry pattern for the MO

    Mullberrys will be ripe in 2 more weeks MO river cats like em as well as the bait fish that stack around them. If the river stays up and you find some mullberry trees leaned out and droppen berrys around some softer water fish ahead of em and have a blast with the blues and flatheads.

    If you get ya butt kicked by a big one dont say I did not warn you.

    Default Great Heads Up

    Thanks for this message. I have heard about the mulberry bite, but have never worked it. I need to find a tree or two! It makes sense.

    I love me a little mulberry tree fishing! You can usually load the boat if you find a good tree in slow current!

    ya last year I really tore em up with mullberries, just put 1 berry on a number 4 hook, no weight and flip it in so it makes a loud "plop". the louder the plop the better. it seems the fish are tuned in to that sound and they race to your bait. lots of 1-10lb channels and blues, lots of mooneye and lots of big carp to have some fun with too. last year a buddy of mine had his pole ripped right out of his hand by a nice blue, funny thing is he snagged his pole back with another pole and still landed his fish! probably some of the funnest fishing I have had, kinda like crappie fishing when they are spawning hard, only the fish are stronger.
    when your out there, look for WHITE mullberries, they aren't as good of bait as the red ones but man are they delicious!

    We hit the river last night for about 3 hours....we fished around some mulberry trees and managed 4 channel cats up to 8 #s and 1 flathead. They are just starting in the St. Joe area.
