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.

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.

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.
