Had the day off, so headed down to chesil via West Bay to pick up some hermit crabs. At the time of leaving the forecast was for the wind to start to die off around 1pm, well it didn't! For the 1st few hours, the only way to fish was with 1 rod held as high as possible to keep the line out of the breakers. I would have given up, but managed three hounds doing this, 6lb, 2 1/2 lb and 5 1/2lb, and was great fun getting the takes whilst holding the rod!

After that it eased a little and could fish with 2 rods again, just. Managed a few dogs, another hound and a 2lb bass, and was then joined by Deano and Birds_Nest. It was just in time as Deano saved me losing this 8lb 12oz starry in the surf...

Fished for a couple more hours and managed two more hounds in the 3-4lb bracket and packed up a very very tired fisherman!
