Fishing with Leeches

line-3< Fishing with Live Bait line-3

Leeches are great for so many different species.  They work well for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike and panfish.  Leeches are very hardy.  By putting them in a container with some water, you can keep leeches alive for weeks.  Leeches tend to work much better once the water warms above 55 degrees.  When it’s colder, the leeches may curl up into a ball and just stay there.  When the water warms above 55 degrees, leeches become much livelier, which draws strikes from a variety of different fish.
