Hook it like a worm from tail to head and make sure the barb of the hook sticks out so it stays...no thread needed ;)

I'm not sure that is the best way. You won't need any thread but the Sturgy won't sense live food either. . . * *:-? ::) 8-)

I'll stick with stretchy thread and live bait. ;)

ive seen them hooked through their sides and mush at least one or two of the shrimps head. that way youll have the shrimp juice coming out of the smushed ones and the kicking action of the ones that arent. then again ive never caught a sturgeon so i dont know. but thats how ive seen it done.

Fishing guide Chuck Powell likes to thread them from head first and out the tail. His reasoning was that the head was the hardest part of the body, and so it should go first.

i usually do in-thru-tail and out thru the head. Tried both ways, both work but i think i will stick with my original method: tail first.

If i do tail first and take the tail above the hook hole, then thread it, it seams to stay nicely on the hook without sliding down.

I've caught them both ways. The way we do it now is to thread the first one and tie several more to that one. The best of both worlds. ;)
