Was The Skunk Ape at Lettuce Lake Park Hold a Fish or a Stick?

FYI – the figure in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcgHKMbYYNw, is actually scooping in the water not to drink, but to reach in and grab what appears to be a very large snake, which it then walks away with.
We asked a professional skunkape hunter in Florida about the object in the subject's hand, and Stacy Brown Jr. believes it neither a tail or a snake. "I believe that's a fish in its hand," says Brown.
