    It was just an ordinary fishing day. I had my net to harvest bait in the current. A tree had fallen into the middle of the bait harvesting area, and I was out there (can't remeber what I was doing) when I saw something on the tree. A minnow, about 4 inches long, had somehow got caught on the tree - and not a fresh one, but a complete skeleton. I don't know how it got there and stayed without flopping back in, and it showed no signs of being attacked. One thing I can think of is that maybe I was throwing out unused dead bait and it got caught there. I don't know. Pretty interesting find - see the picture below.

    I saw this wierd event on the tube the other day. There are these minnows in the rainforrest, and they spawn in the trees!! The female jumps out of the water an deposits eggs on a leaf, and the male jumps up and fertilizes them. Then for the next 5 days both the fish takes turns splashing water on the eggs till they hatch. Maybe we have these fish here, and one of them got stuck in the tree.

    Crazy...I'm almost positive I caught a 3 inch redfish in my cast-net today.....65 miles upriver from the gulf. But don't be completely surprised, sometimes the river travels backwards when there is a lot of rainfall for some reason and the tides....I'm not sure how, but it does flow backwards sometimes. There have also been stories of people catching sand trout (close to speckle trout but without specks) here in Lafayette in the Vermillion. I wish I woulda taken a picture of it, but the mosquitos were really tearin me up, haha.

    This can be explained quite easily, high water + dead fish floating = left on branch when water recides..lol:lol: :big_smile:

    A coon or oppossum could have caught/found it and went out on the tree to eat it.
