Chesil (Abbotsbury) and its wind

Post by SimonV » Fri Jan 27, 2012 2:09 pm

The long range forcast says...12mph W Winds with gusts up to 24mph and it ment to be like it for 7 days before that. With these gusts, would it be too dangerous to fish?

Don't know the area but i shouldn't have thought so. 12mph wind isn't that bad really. I've fished in much worse and higher gust strengths which is uncomfortable but not necessarily dangerous

You've got your 100 views as well

I have fished chesil many times over the years in force 6 gales!
Its not been what you would call dangerous but just far more difficult to actually fish.

Hi Simon, your posts will show views that have had visits from countless internet bots and visitors that are not members here that cant actually reply.
I should not take much notice in the views as it does not really give a true reading.
Best of luck

simon,its not so much the winds ,its the swells that are the danger along chesil.seen waves take out complete shelfs in a short period.
