Default new bait?

I had 3 carp on mulberrys on Sunday.. yes mulberrys!

The carp were munching on the mulberrys from the overhanging tree in the DesPlaines river in Channahon by the in-laws house.

Hard to cast a little piece of mulberry (no weight or bobber....)
plus they would fall off easily and stain my finger/thumb putting them on.

First one broke the line trying to pull him out of the water (I know better but didn't want to thumb him on and had no net...also only 6 pound test) I lost a bigger one who spit my hook after a couple of strong pulls and rolls.

The last one was about 4-5 pounds, brought him in on heavier line/pole
