Adding some stink juice?

Lou T said the same thing and my friend thinks it could be so water can enter and give some weight for better castability.

my friend also says his has chambers inside 1 in front and one in back.

Nice HH, that's wood right?

 

Built by who?

 

Fished with a bunch of guys years ago; that all used scent. It was squeezed into the hook hanger hole.

 

Doubt that little dimple is for a scent trail...:)

How do they swim HH?

 

Got a nice looking finish, If they swim as good as they look you got a winner.

 

Good Luck with it

I knew a guy that would install a screw eye around this area.  He would use double hooks over treble hooks and would use twist tie wire to secure the hook to the screw eye to keep the plug compact and the hook from swinging. He claimed it improved the action on the plug and hook up rate.    Maybe this plug had something similar
