I really didn't know the genesis of the name 'Big Show', still don't. But after being of one the few invited for five nights of what most might call 'excess', at his Florida home near the St. Johns River in Florida, the feasts of drink, beef, and seafood, from his grill convinced me he more than earned the title. The Scroggins lifestyle, his cooking, his approach to tournament fishing and the tireless pace of his life... is indeed a 'Big Show'.
50th: Scroggins Misread Things
> Day 2: 1, 1-06 (5, 7-11) - Terry Scroggins doesn’t fish too often in cold-water conditions like this week, but he still felt like the fish would’ve more into a pre-spawn mode than still in their winter phase.
“I just misjudged everything,” he said. “I started off the whole week wrong. I thought the fish were a little further along than they were. The way it turned out, they’re all still out in the main lake for the most part.
“I fished way too fast and tried to cover too much water, but that’s my style of fishing. It’s hard for me to slow down, but when the water temperature’s 41 or 42 degrees, you have to go slow. I went from A to Z mainly targeting them on jerkbaits and jigs. I didn’t leave a whole lot uncovered. I think the whole deal was I was fishing too fast.”
