This little fish was just left sitting here like this by some teenage kid that was fishing. When I asked him why he had not put it back in the water to live being that it was such a small catch. He replied by saying I was going to use him for bait to catch a bigger fish but am leaving now as I have to go. Again I asked why don't you put it back into it's home. He said, I don't have time. So I picked it up gently and laid him in the water by hand till he was breathing in again then laid him further down in the water and watched as he swam away. Kids these days, sometimes I just don't get them.
