Angling in Portland

The waters around Portland attract anglers from all over the country. Chesil Beach was voted best sea fishing venue by readers of 'Improve Your Sea Angling' magazine. Portland Bill is also a popular spot for fishing with all its coves and rocky outcrops, particularly Pulpit Rock.

Mullet fishing is some of the best in Britain, and conditions are good for wrasse, dab, gunfish and plaice. Even sub-tropical fish are sometimes caught in these warm waters. Both the quantity and variety of fish is excellent.

Chesil Cove and Chesil Beach also offer great fishing with easy access. All species can be caught here and 20lb Cod and the British record Rockling have been caught from Chesil Cove, just a few minutes walk from the Hotel.

Catch and cook

After a good fishing trip why not bring some of your hard earnt catch back to The Breakwater where our kitchen team will cook it to how you like it.
