Toyota pro Terry Scroggins has long been nicknamed “Big Show” – a name given to him by a boat mechanic near his home waters of the St. Johns River, when Scroggins was winning darn near every derby held on the famous Northeast Florida waterway.
Just as fitting however, might be the nickname “Terry the Tinkerer.” The highly likeable pro can’t stand not using his mechanically talented mind and hands to improve an existing lure, or better yet, build an original of his own.
Scroggins’ fast growing in popularity “Kicker Tail” worm – created in a side room of his garage with the help of a mold maker from Michigan -- provides fascinating proof of Scroggins’ talents.

Just because Team Toyota’s Brandon Lester is only 31 years old, doesn’t mean he’s too inexperienced to remember lures that everybody cast not long ago to catch springtime bass -- which then seemed to fall out of fashion.
Fact is, Lester has competed in nearly 100 B.A.S.S. events, and already qualified for 5 Bassmaster Classics, including the 2020 Classic in Alabama where he had a very good chance to win going into the final day.
So we asked the country music loving father of two young daughters to choose a couple lures we all should consider digging out of our tackle collection to throw big bass a change-up as springtime bass fishing is in full effect.
Seaguar offers you a chance to spend a day on the water — chasing some of the biggest, meanest bass that you’ll ever encounter — with professional angler and TV personality Mark Zona.
Enter to win one of 50 prizes in the Seaguar Zona Smackdown contest, including the grand prize of a fun-packed, all-expenses-paid fishing adventure with Mark Zona, one of the most knowledgeable, entertaining, and influential anglers in the entire fishing industry.
“I’ve been told that I’m a little intense in the water,” noted Zona while chasing bronzebacks in his home state of Michigan. “Well, one of you is going to win a fishing trip with me, so you can witness that intensity for yourself. And when you step into the boat, you’ll be throwing the best braided line on the planet: Seaguar Smackdown!”
From now until June 30, entrants can visit http://www.winseaguar.com/smackdown to enter the Seaguar Zona Smackdown contest. You could walk away a winner with your very own spool of Seaguar Smackdown braided line, or the grand prize of a fishing trip with Mark Zona, including airfare, ground transportation, lodging, meals, and some great Seaguar gear.
Entrants in the Seaguar Zona Smackdown contest must be 18 years old or older, and legal US residents residing in one of the 48 contiguous United States or the District of Columbia. Entries will be accepted until 11:59:59 on June 30, 2020. The contest has a limit of one entry per person.
