BRISTOL, TN (WJHL) - There was something definitely "fishy" going on at the new Bass Pro Shop in Bristol Friday. Pinnacle developer Steve Johnson released the ceremonial "first fish" into the huge aquarium at the new Bass Pro Shop.

The fish named "Jack", along with several of his friends, are now permanent residents of the aquarium. 

Taking care of the fish is the "fish doctor" for the Bristol and Sevierville locations of Bass Pro Shop Kevin Foster.

With this aquarium being the center piece of the new store, Foster's job is very important. 

"A person in my field..it makes you feel pretty good that you're doing a good job...that everybody likes what they see," said Foster. 

The grand opening of the new Bass Pro Shop, takes place next Wednesday at 6 p-m.  The grand opening celebration includes door prizes for the early birds. 

  • Thursday, Aug. 21 – First 200 customers 18 years of age or older will receive a Bass Pro Shops gift card ranging in value from $5 to $100.
  • Friday, Aug. 22 – First 200 customers will receive a Columbia Omni-Freeze ZERO Neck Gaiter 
  • Saturday, Aug. 23 – First 200 customers will receive Bass Pro Shops Life Straws personal water filter
  • Sunday, Aug. 24 – First 200 customers will receive a Bass Pro Shops Tervis Tumbler
