MLF Pro Reveals Big Bass Rod Recipe

Catch up with Big Show at the start of Major League Fishing’s Bass Pro Tour and check out his custom built MHX baitcasting rod recipe that landed him this 7-pound, 9-ounce big bass  at the famed Sam Rayburn Reservoir.

The Big Bass Rod Recipe from Sam Rayburn

Fans of Major League Fishing met his Elite-X NMB843-MHX rod when Scroggins tied on his signature vibrating jig and in no time, boat flipped a hefty Sam Rayburn largemouth weighing in at 7-pounds, 9-ounces.

“I knew the vibrating jig would wack ‘em, but that fish about got me,” Terry joked before reenacting his smooth, deep hookset, “Luckily, I leaned on my Elite-X NMB843-MHX and we put the pressure on her until that Day 1 big bass title was all mine.”

Big Show punched his ticket for big bass and cashed in!

Not long after, he gave us the inside scoop on the MHX baitcaster he built to do it.
