that being said there are three main ways I stick a hook through a bait, although sometimes I use others these three are the "norm"
#1 behind the dorsal fin through the fleshy part without hitting and severing the spinal column,this keeps the bait lively and free swimming on anything I am hanging in place like under a float. used mostly in lakes or slow moving water
#2 up from underneath

I really notice this the most when drifting in a lake when your dragging baits 75 to 200 foot behind the boat , I catch alot more fish and bigger fish when using a small cork to keep my bait a foot or 2 off the bottom then if I dont use a cork .
also see this when Im drifting ( bottom
