    i personally dont use leeches, but i can remember back when my grandpa was alive he used them alot for channels.. when baiting them on i remember him burning their mouth with a lit cigarette first. he said if you dont, when they are on the hook they will ball up and not wiggle around. once you burn them, they no longer have suction so they can tstay balled up like that, and will wiggle around like a crawler on the hook
