Default I prefer head. Have fished w plenty of guides and

I'd say it's 60/40 heads over tails. Doesn't really matter.

Go downward from the head just behind the brain into and out of the back/ body. They'll stay alive for a little while. There's no way to sure fire hook up every time. Good luck and most importantly have fun.

In the top of the head at the base of the horn. They will live forever and you can cast them easily. Or hook them in the base segment of the tail.

Everything I've seem and read and done is hook them 2 or 3 segments before the tail. This keeps them alive longer and able to move around and chance for better hit from bigger fish and fewer bait stealers.
