The mission of Mud Hole TV is to bring the rewards of rod building to the masses. Not only by teaching you how to build your own custom rods, but also by going out and catching fish with the very rods we built to do it.

This time our rod building endeavors might’ve bitten off more than we can chew, but luckily our favorite pro angler and his good friends brought their expertise to the gator wrangling party.




Custom Rods Wrestle Gator with MLF Pro

Well like many great fishing stories, this one also starts with MLF Pro Terry “Big Show” Scroggins.

Big Show has many good friends in the outdoors industry and this particular group was in need of a fishing rod, but not just any rod. The fine folks over at God’s Country Outfitters needed a special custom fishing rod built to professionally wrangle nuisance alligators.

Not everyone is putting their fishing rods up against full-grown alligators, but we built this custom rod for the challenge, and it performed perfectly alongside Terry “Big Show” Scroggins and God’s Country Outfitters.
