Dynamic Blog – Fred Shrimp and Devil’s Horse St. Johns 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Power Pole

DynamicBlogHeaderAlan McGuckin of Dynamic Sponsorships sent us his 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 photo essay on the Bassmaster Elite Series on the St. Johns River event.  Fitting that he should choose to highlight not only one of the best anglers in the business, but one of the true good guys on tour as well.  You all know Terry “Big Show” Scroggins from The Bassmasters on ESPN2 and The Outdoor Channel, but what you don’t see is his kindhearted nature.  Scroggins is always ready to lend a hand, feed a crew at his home before events and even make sure you know where to go catch a bass – even if its on his home water.

Here is Guck’s photo essay on Big Show


5 lures Scroggins St Johns

Five lures local favorite Terry “Big Show” Scroggins will have tied on during the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on the St. Johns River: 1.) Devil’s Horse – a legendary topwater anywhere in Florida. 2.) Xr50 One Knocker lipless crankbait. 3.) Bomber 7A firetiger crankbait. 4.) Bomber Switchback Shad crankbait that dives to about 10-feet. 5.) Carolina Rig

Four things you may not know about Scroggins: 1.) He can perform an isometric abdominal plank exercise for at least three consecutive minutes 2.) Prior to becoming a pro angler he painted cars and drove a tow truck for 15 years. 3.) He likes to fish with spinning tackle equally as much as baitcasting equipment. 4.) He has two beautiful blonde-headed grandchildren.

3 Scroggins St Johns

Three pros other than himself that Scroggins chose for his B.A.S.S. Fantasy Fishing team here on his home waters this week: Cliff Prince – he also grew up here. Shaw Grigsby – he only lives an hour away, and when the bass are on spawning beds, he may very well be the best sight fisherman that’s ever lived. Todd Faircloth – he seemingly catches ‘em everywhere we go, and he finished really high here in 2012.

2 Scroggins St Johns

Two local restaurants Scroggins recommends you eat at here in Palatka, FL: Corky Bell’s for crab legs, steak, and shrimp, and also Musslewhite’s for fried shrimp.

One guess what the winning weight will be: 82 pounds. Scroggins added that he thought an average catch of 12 or 13 pounds a day would be good enough to land in the Top 50 or so places necessary to haul home a paycheck.
