Went back again about 17:15 today, heading up to Napenape tomorrow for the morning with a mate. Took me about 30mins to get 62 (counted on the beach before leaving), all of good proportions the smaller ones going back. Myself & one other guy were the only people not of asian heritage, 7 people total. Now the asians were there before I got there & didnt look like they were leaving any time soon when I did. My catch would have 1/2-2/3 filled a grocery bag, they were collecting into buckets that were then emptied into large chiller type bags up the beach that looked like they were bulging at the seams. Im not saying they took more than the daily limit each(cough) but what do they do with so many ? sell them ? eat them ?
The lastest update Ive seen for toxins in shellfish for the area from Leithfield Beach-Pigeon Bay was dated 21st Dec 2009, is it still in place? If it wasnt I’d be eating them myself!
Look Fishy, no swearing lol!
