The plastic plant must have had food stuck to it

Fish I have seen with pebbles lodged in their mouth,throat,did not wait to starve, but began flashing,barrel rolling , violently thrashing, in effort's to dislodge the obstruction and perished within a few day's if they or I could not dislodge the obstruction.
With large fish,damp towel,you can sometimes wrap the fish in damp towel, and dislodge the obstruction with tweezer's,Hemostat's.
I too spend considerable time fishing, and have found all kind's of non edible object's inside big Blue catfish,flathead catfsih bellies. golf ball's, batteries, styrofoam,rock's,even a child's shoe.
