The Fetch-n-Fish Tub, featuring former Mudcats TV announcer Jason Reynolds combining fishing seminars with dog shows, is coming to New Orleans later this week for the 2017 Louisiana Sportsman Show presented by Reed’s Metals in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The show will be open this Friday, July 21 from 3 to 9 p.m., Saturday, July 22 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, July 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendance for kids 5 and under is free, children 6 to 12 are $5 and adults 13 and older are $10.
Throughout the show, Reynolds will be featuring his high-flying dogs that will be jumping into a 41-foot-long bass tub.
The show invites audience participation, particularly from children who help mark the longest jumps —and could 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 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.
In addition, the Kids’ Zone will have seminars and casting clinics geared for the little ones — with prizes.
