Casting Calls at The BASS TUB

Get up-close views of a big bass striking a lure, as professional angler Chuck Devereaux demonstrates a variety of techniques for casting and retrieval.

Visitors to this year’s show will marvel at the giant 5,000-gallon Bass Tub aquarium, which offers views from both sides and stands nine feet tall. A Bass Tub is a unique aquarium, over 40 feet long, which rolls down the highway as a gooseneck trailer and is transformed into a natural habitat for thirty to forty fish of various species. To simulate the conditions normally found in nature, the tank comes fully stocked with rocks, stumps and dozens of live fish. Using live fish during our demonstrations offers you the chance to see the fish and lure presentation in action. This is a great educational experience for the newbie and the veteran.

Throughout the five days of the show, fishing fanatics will find Devereaux perched on top of the massive tank as he demonstrates the proper use of fishing lures and offers other helpful suggestions. Stop by and see how your favorite fish reacts to Devereaux’s techniques and get a first-hand look at how lures operate in the water.

The goal of the BASS TUB is to entertain by demonstrating fishing techniques. We want spectators to get excited about fishing! We share fishing information from seasoned professionals for individuals who are experienced anglers as well those amateurs who want to learn. This information teaches you the basics, and professional tricks of the trade for effective fishing! Chuck also likes to hang around and answer questions.
