Anyone have a formula for how many dozen you usually take on a given number of days? I'm heading into the Boundary Waters on Thurday- walleyes are biting on crawlers right now still. I was thinking about grabbing up 6 dozen for the trip- there's storms in the forecast on Friday and scattered storms Saturday- so we won't be fishing hard out in the canoe on those days. Did I mention I'm packing a cribbage board on this trip Laughing Out Loud

We havent taken crawlers for years as we always use plastics. I would say 6 dozen would be good because you can pinch them in half and then if you run out you can get some confidence in artificial! Also, a cribbage board is a must on every trip up north!!!

We always stopped in Minnesota and picked up a pound or two of leeches. Keep extremely well if you have a leech locker.
