Ye the place are on the mussel beds which run on the west side at the end of the shambles bank. I have a charter boat in portland marina if u ever fancey a trip. Ye there is some great fishing around to the west towards westbay, u don't get lots of turbot but there are some nice place to be had but only up to 4-5lb. Off of portland they get up to 8lb. Stronger tides = bigger fish

There are Plaice grounds on the western side of the Bill. About 2/3rds the distance from the South most tip of the Bill to Chesil bank. Can't give exact location as I've only fished it on a Charter but had very good results on rag tipped with prawn.
