Dover: Is Kents most famous seaside town. Famed for its access to mainland Europe Dover is a very busy town for its size. Positioned where the north sea meets the English Channel Dover has a long history of producing fantastic fishing and has a healthy fishing fleet operating from the harbour. The area produces fantastic bass fishing in the summer months and again brilliant cod fishing in the winter.
