You probably had a cicada crawl in there!

It happens to me all the time. A minnow most likely got stuck in there.
It's really easy to fix. I know this sounds funny, but stick your finger in the drain hole inside the livewell. Push it in and out a few times and it creates a suction (like a plunger) and it should drain. You need a little water in the livewell for it to work. (Sounds like you already do)
