A) Yes, I do use the whole night crawler when I'm using the wiggle worming technique. The reason, not onle for the worm length, but for the "wiggling" motion itself is to make the night crawler rotate in the water. The lazy whirling motion that the combination imparts is what, I think, the walleyes are attracted to. The action is not unlike the action imparted by "slow death" hooks that are used for some other live bait presentations which are also effective at attracting walleyes.
I snooped around the internet, looking for more examples of the technique in action and found this video, produced several years ago by Fish ED. In this fun video, you'll not only get an extensive look at the technique, but I also delve into the history and development of this highly effective presentation. Oh, and by the way, unlike a lot of other product oriented videos, this one was filmed just aroound the corner from my house in Grand Rapids, on pressured water, and not on some remote lake where the walleyes bite everything that moves.
