Don't want to p*ss on your bonfire Marcus but XC-Weather http://www.xcweather.co.uk/ has S/SW winds 24 - 26mph from mid afternoon Saturday through into the early hours of Sunday before easing Sunday late morning.

I was planning to head to Ferrybridge for Saturday night myself but with winds like that I fear Chesil may be a tad on the dangerous side to fish this weekend:unsure:

Is there a particular mark you're after? The whole stretch is known as ferrybridge. Further east the next well known spot is the checkpoint and to the west is the bridging camp. Around the area of the car park you have the wrecks of the adelaide and landing craft.

should be ok to fish if a little difficult to cast,summer lows seldom have the same power as those of winter atlantic storms,most bad weather that hits the beach's has been building up for weeks far out at sea,provided you stay on the side of 'common sense' you ought to be ok.:blink:

How do you think I feel , I drove 6 and a half hrs to get here on Sunday and had a fishing trip arranged for Tuesday . It was blowing a HOOLY , the sea was as rough as F**k , however there was mackeral .But that was during the day . There was a bit more but I'll leave that to the angler wh done the catching to report his story :thumbs::clap3:

Hope Friday morning is better .

Despite what JTK says if the wind does what is forecast sat eve then stay away. He may well be right but chesil in a big sea is not a place for people not familiar with the beach (and from your post I assume you are not?).

Beside the obvious danger is will likely be weeded out in a stong SW and this make fishing a nightmare anyway. Find somewhere more sheltered
