    depending on where im fishing.in currant i hook them in the nose.if im fishing a lake or dead water i fish them just under and bout 2/3rds of the way back of their top fin.if fishing dead water and on bottom with a carolina rig i hook them under the belly and just behind their butt.hook them as shallow as you can and still cast them.
