Bassmaster Elite Series professional angler Terry Scroggins of San Mateo, FL—who goes by the nickname of “Big Show” hoists a 7.7-pound largemouth bass, the biggest fish thus far of the Toyota Texas Bass Classic, which is being held on Lake Conroe.
Although currently in fourth place, Scroggins’ big bass was enough to put him at a two-day total of 30 lbs., 4 oz., and into the event’s final round on Sunday.
He currently trails Brian Snowden (33 lbs., 0 oz.) of Reed Springs, MO; Edwin Evers (32 lbs., 8 oz.) of Talala, OK; and Fred Roumbanis (31 lbs., 0 oz.) of Bixby, OK, who finished first through third, respectively, despite today’s rainy and windy conditions.
What began with 50 of the sport’s top bass fishing pros, has now been whittled to just 11 finalists that will compete on Sunday for a $100,000 purse.
Tickets to the event, which also includes a large outdoor activity expo and concert, are free. For all of the day’s fishing results and for ticket information, visit www.toyotatexasbassclassic.com
