I use the whole worm as well, bottom bouncers are the easiest way to go.

I've made a couple harnesses and they actually worked well! Something I've just started doing is simply adding a blade and a few beads to the end of my 6 or 8 lb test line.Add half a worm or a leech and there ya go!It seems to get more bites but you will lose some gear.Doesnt cost much tho'.This is my "stealth harness" method.

Pretty much the same as everyone has said before. Use the whole crawler. I perfer the harnesses with only two hooks. I think it allows the crawler to float alittle freer. If you're getting alot of short strikes, go to a 3 hook harness, or slow down your trolling speed.

If your making your own i'd make some 3ft and some 7ft and inbetween. Add floats to some and not the others. It all depends on the bottom.

I've used Berkley's Bungee leech on a harness.  Give the tab that keeps it curled a tug to release the full length of the tail.  They work well.  They are very pliable and not as durable as some of the other berkley products but you can generally catch several fish on one.
