Avoiding gut hooking

Almost don't want to admit it, but when I take the kids out to Wachusett, we use worms. Hey, he's 2, and it would be pretty scarey seeing that fly line whipping around!

I always crush the barbs, but even then the panfish (sunfish) seem to really swallow the hook deeper than necessary (try tell them that). Is my hook too small (#6)?
