i recently ordered one and received it in todays mail, opened that bad boy up and with my first examination wasnt too pleased, on the bottom where the lures usually sealed with a plastic or metal cap theres a decent sized hole, my assumption which could be wrong is these lures will get water logged and not retreive correctly, has anyone used these new lures yet and if so did they swim correctly, secondly if no one has what are your opinions on this point, im kinda nervous because i was psyched to use this lure with those cool kicking legs :'(

The hole is there so you can stuff cool things into it like a bell or a rattle. Use your imagination. You could seal the hole up if you want.

I ordered 2 Bigfoots several weeks ago from Bass Pro and cast them several times over clear water and slop. I was very impressed with their action. The wake that the feet create is almost indentical to that of the Ribbit. Of course the top water bite is not on now and we're going to have to wait a little while longer to see how they hook up. I have only used Spro Bronze Eyes up to now for my slop fishing and if they come out with a paddle foot I will definitely give that a try also. As noted, the Scum Frog has larger openings that will let water in but It takes several casts before the action is affected and you can shake the water out every couple of casts.
