Terry Scroggins might just win the Mr. Congeniality award if pro bass fishing had such a thing. The central Florida native is upbeat, always optimistic and quick to lend his mechanical mind to fix just about anything he or his fellow pros tear up along their 40,000 miles of travel each year.

His grill skills are legendary too - spurring a monthly cooking blog featuring his favorite recipes and a photo intensive account of him preparing his favorite meals.

Scroggins is pretty quick to figure out the winning fishing pattern too. He reached the $1,000,000 in BASS winnings faster than just about anybody in the history of the sport. Once perceived as only being able to win in his home state of Florida where he earned the nickname “Big Show” -- Scroggins has proven he can succeed anywhere in America. In early 2008, he missed eclipsing the BASS single-day catch record by just ounces in south Texas.

Scroggins is truly one of the best in the anglers in the world, and his super-friendly demeanor will make the Florida native popular with fellow pros, fans, and media. If you want to know a killer grill recipe, how to catch anything that swims in fresh or saltwater, or need help changing the spark plugs in your lawnmower, then “Big Show” is your guy.
