Something’s Fishy at TMMMS

Pro fishing’s best take a tour in Mississippi

June 20, 2017
Turn up the Bass – Pro angler Terry Scroggins (red shirt) joined Kevin VanDam, Mike Iaconelli and Gerald Swindle in touring Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi last month. 

So here’s something you may or may not have known: Toyota Motor North America has a pretty strong relationship with bass fishing, sponsoring many of the top anglers on the Bassmaster tour.  
At Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi, employees get a chance to bond over their favorite pastime with the Bass Club. Professionally, Toyota sponsors some of the top anglers on the circuit. It all came together in May when pro anglers Kevin “KVD” VanDam, Terry Scroggins, Mike Iaconelli and Gerald Swindle visited TMMMS and took a tour of the plant.
“They’re as passionate about building cars as I am about catching bass,” Swindle said after his visit. “That’s rare to see in a workplace, that that many people are on the same page, marching to the same beat.”
The anglers’ visit made for an intriguing video, and we wanted to share it with you today. So, to watch these pro anglers meet TMMMS, just click here.
