I use 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG for almost all my soft plastics. 7" power worms, chigger craws, lizards, brush hogs.... I use a 4/0 EWG Superline Gama's for most weightless plastics like Flukes, Rattlesnakes, LFT Ring-Frys(my favorite weightless)...because it gives me a near perfect weight/fall for "weightless" plastics. I will go up to 5/0 EWG Gama's for larger plastics like 10"-12" Powerworms, Zoom Ol' Monsters... But back to your question: on smaller plastics without much body/meat like the Baby Brush Hog, Bubble Fry.... I use the 2/0 EWG light wire Gama's and in every case I bring my hook through the body of the bait and "skin hook" the point back into the top of the bait. I do believe though if you were to leave the hook point set in the body with these thinner bodied baits without bringing the point thru I don't think you would have a bad hookup rate because the hook will come out of these easy.
