Like this:

Except I keep the point of the hook buried in the plastic. You want the hook to ride in the groove under the bait.

AH the Fluke. Rebasser showed you the way, however the hook size is very important along with a good stiff rod, and no/low strecth line. The groove in the bottom is for the hook to set in. I rig them both upside down, and right side up, it seems to make little difference to the bass as to which way I rig it. They are very good many times when twitched quickly up on the top or just below the surface, the bass will just hit them like a buzzbait at times. Other times a slight twitch with a long pause/fall is the ticket. One of the greatest baits made IMO. If it's the super fluke you should use a 5/0 hook. And make sure you let the bass take it for just a couple of quick seconds and run, then cross it's eyes and have fun.

There are three types of Snakes I hate 1. Live Snakes 2. Dead Snakes 3. Sticks that look like Snakes. And Gators too!

I have fairly good luck with these. but I do something a bit different. I don't use any weight for starters. I texas rig the bait and rig it so that the eye of the hook causes the nose end of the bait into an upward turn. By doing this I can cause the bait to dart and skip out of the water like a fleeing baitfish. Seems to work for me.
