Default ALEWIFE for freshwater striper

Curious as to what size hook you all are using when using live alewives for bait. I caught some 4-5 inch alewives the last time I was at the lake. I was using a NO. 1 Gamakatzu circle hook and hooking them through both nostrils. Some of the bait it seems came off the hook that way. Should I use a smaller wire hook and hook them in the back or where should I hook them? Where is the best place to hook them to keep them alive longer and which hooks do you use? Thanks

I like circle hooks too. However, a size 6 eagle claw treble will also work well for alewife.
