Recipe for Sea Bass and Chorizo

When there is surf rolling onto Chesil Beach there is a good chance that bass will be in feeding amongst the crashing waves. This last week high tide was at dawn, combined with a good surf, made for perfect conditions (please remember this is a dangerous place and don’t attempt to fish if it is too rough – if the beach is empty of fishermen it is too rough!!!!) It always surprises me just how close bass will follow the lure before they take, sometimes they almost beach themselves in the foaming sea. Thursday I was lucky enough to catch a couple of bass and I kept one for dinner, but by Friday the sea way too rough so I stayed well away.
