depends on what you're using.

for shrimp I run the hook just behind the head lengthwise or else try to get it underneath some trying for a bit more natural appearance...

for baitfish the middle of the tail so it appears injured and easy prey

Some people have other preferences, it is best to try a few different methods to see what works for you,

some go through the mouth, but I prefer the tail, I have just had better hookup ratio.
