I came across this and obviously couldn't help but to call it extremely unusual and possibly made up. Yes we know of turtles and birds mistaking plastic as food sources but a bass swallowing a plastic bottle? An inanimated tasteless hard plastic bottle? I now feel stupid knowing that I have likely spent £2k+ over the years in lure fishing while I could have just add a treeble to a bottle of evian water.

There was probably a crab or goby living in the bottle !
Lol the OP said bottle was cut in half. Funny I'm getting my comment downvoted in that place maybe from the same people confusing it with carp or cod (yes true!) and other "bass" fish.

If true its a sad indication of the state of our seas. On the other hand it's also testament to the predator/ scavenger/ opportunistic freeloader that is old Labrax. There's been times this year that I'm damn certain they'd have chased and taken a suitably rigged bit of clear plastic that was a long way removed from our desired Japanese imports! On the most exceptional day this year I landed ten fish in ten consecutive casts with multiple hits/attempts on every retrieve - so ridiculous was the feeding frenzy that it made me change lures to try many - but yet they still came. So I'm quite sure nothing is impossible. Oh his wonderful addiction 😍

Devils advocate I'll say 50/50 it's fake or real, but we're talking about Reddit where somebody will have original content removed as offensive then post the original as their own a week later for karma farming.

In short, don't post anything on Reddit if you don't want to be called a liar or have your own original content stolen. Girls gone wild is good though, I thought it was about females wild camping and roughing it :sneaky:

I have found all sort of trash like plastic bottlecaps, rubber rings inside the guts of sea breams.

Definitely possible. I once caught a mackerel that was full of sweet corn and cigarette buts!

It won't help with cleaning up all the plastic junk already in the sea, but If more countries put a deposit on plastic bottles it would be a start.
