i normally hook mine close to the tail but not to close and on the upper part of the fish. that or right through the eyes. works good for me both ways. and still have some of the fish that were hooked live for a week or so after.

Below and behind the dorsal fin, they live a long time that way.
They will last less than 2 minutes in fast water. That makes the water run over their gills the wrong way, and eventually drowns them. Just like hooking a rope on a fishes tail, and taking off in a boat.\
Lakes, they will live forever hooked like that. All depends where you fish I suppose.
