    [b:1wbsz2zy]News reports this morning of a shellfish gathering ban on Pegasus Bay beaches, right down to Pigeon Bay on Banks peninsula.

    Evidently there is a toxin rampant at present and side affects include vomitting and diarrhoea, just for starters. :shock:

    That is a helluva wide area and probably not a good time to be after the local shellfish for bait gathering in case of problems through handling.[/b:1wbsz2zy]

    If you just CAN’T resist, take some surgical or rubber gloves with you coz I am sure the Rig and Ele’s won’t be chucking up or having violent number twos in the ocean and if they do that too will probably make the news!! :D

    Nothing worse than enjoying your day in a special spot when all looks really fishy…..and having to run before the “runs” start. :wink:

    Happened to me on the Tongariro at the Red Hut Pool one awesomely fishy morning……oh it was not a good feeling climbing back up the track with severe stomach cramps, spoiled the morning for me anyway.
