right throuth the eyes i found to be the best. They never come off and always stay lively. Hook through one eye socket and out the other. Takes some practice, but its pretty simply

I make my own minnow rigs to use with some nice sized blue shiners and just use a double pronged hook not a treble....... they drift rather straight or enough to make a nice brown or rainbow to bite. My theory is if it aint broke dont fix it........

When trolling in lakes, I use a jig, with the hook coming straight up through the head. It kills the minnow, but it still swims straight, does'nt come off, and I catch fish as long as they don't just bite the tail off.
