Fetch-n-Fish Tub debuts at Louisiana Sportsman Show

Event combines fishing seminars, retriever display

New at this year’s Louisiana Sportsman Show is the Fetch-n-Fish Tub, which features former Mudcats TV announcer Jason Reynolds combining fishing seminars with dog shows.

Throughout the show, Reynolds will be featuring his high-flying dogs that will be jumping into his 41-foot-long bass tub.

The Fetch-n-Fish Tub show invites audience participation, particularly from children who help mark the longest jumps (and might get wet in the process).

“Basically what we do is a family fun program,” Reynolds explained. “We talk a little about obedience, then a little about dog training, and I mix it with some and some fun games and some dog tricks. And the ultimate of the show is when I have the dogs jump in the fish tank.

“This is not just dog training — this is entertainment. This is something the whole family can relate to. The kids love it.”

But this show isn’t all about dog jumping: The 4,000-gallon tank also is stocked with bass and used to demonstrate fishing tactics.

“It’s a home run,” Reynolds said of the combined dog and fishing shows.
