Florida Bassmaster Elite Series pro Terry Scroggins fills in for the absent Kevin VanDam for the second Major League Fishing event, which will begin airing Jan. 3 on the Outdoor Channel. The event was filmed in late August at New York's Lake Chautauqua.
BassFans may recall that Scroggins was part of the organization's original roster, but stepped away prior to the initial event for what he cited as "personal reasons."
“We were absolutely delighted to welcome Terry Scroggins to Major League Fishing," said MLF commissioner Don Rucks. "As one of the top anglers on the B.A.S.S. Elite Series tour, we are fortunate that he's joining us."
“Terry’s a creative and popular angler, and he has the type of on-camera personality that works extremely well at Major League Fishing. We believe we have a field of anglers that is second to none, and Terry Scroggins fits right in.”
Tim Horton, who missed the league’s first event due to a prior commitment, also competed at Chautauqua. In the league’s first event last year, Todd Faircloth stepped in for Horton.
VanDam was forced to sit out the Chautauqua event due to a sponsor obligation.
