The water temps usualy has to be above 50 degrees (suface temp) before they ball up.

We've consistently had poor luck with crawlers until the temp reaches into the 50's. Don't even bring them anymore.

Hey Kdawg, Have you been fishing Pulaski at all for Crappies?

I use leeches on opener every year and have never had that problem. If they are rolling on you, put an "on deck" leech on the carpet or out in the air. When they are dry they swim like crazy when they hit the water. If they are getting stiff, just change them out with a fresh one. This year I may bring either some spotted tailed shinners or red tails, but leeches are my main bait.
