Capt. Sonny Schindler found this water bottle inside a redfish’s stomach as he cleaned the fish. Capt. Sonny Schindler

The plastic bottle this redfish swallowed was probably crushed before it was tossed or blown overboard. Remember, our trash is easily mistaken for food by marine animals like fishes and turtles. Just stow your bottles and trash and dispose of them properly back at the dock. Capt. Sonny Schindler

Schindler said the 27-inch redfish was caught in the Louisiana Marsh on April 10. He always opens the stomach, when he cleans fish, to see what it has ingested. Capt. Sonny Schindler
