Anglo Dawn is based at Falmouth Marina and skippered by Rob Stacey & Andy Howell
She was built in 2012 as a purpose-built charter-angling boat, which makes her Falmouth’s newest charter boat. Anglo Dawn is a Blue Water 32, built in the South West and she’s licensed to carry 10 passengers, plus 2 crew members. She’s powered by a Volvo D6 370hp engine.
Facilities on board include a toilet, a microwave and a kettle. She also comes equipped with 14 sets of top-of-the-range fishing tackle and she’s fully coded by the MCA, which means she carries all of the relevant safety equipment.
Andy Howell has a wealth of diving and angling experience in the area. We believe in dedicating our time to you during your trip, therefore all bookings are handled on-shore by another member of crew.

Andy is also available to answer questions via our Facebook page (when he’s not at sea!).

Rob Stacey & Andy Howell are Anglo Dawn’s skippers
Andy has been fishing since he was a boy, and has been running diving and fishing trips in the area for over a decade. He has an extensive knowledge of this part of the South West coast, both above and below water. He has all of the relevant qualifications to run a safe boat.
As a fisherman himself, Andy likes nothing better than passing on his experience and showing others how to catch fish.
Anglo Dawn offers a range of specialist trips, including:
The main area in which we fish has a famously rocky coastline. This in itself makes for great fishing ground and has also contributed to hundreds of ship wrecks across the south coast of Cornwall, many of these occurred during the two world wars. Some wrecks are much older than this, some more recent. We have wrecks as close as 1 mile offshore so you can discover these ideal fishing spots without a long journey. The fish we are likely to catch over the wrecks are pollock, cod, ling and large conger eels.
Bass are a prime sport species sort after by many anglers and we are lucky to have plenty of habitat to hold these challenging fish. We can fish for these in a variety of ways, from live-baiting under a float to lure fishing. While it is nice (and perfectly acceptable) to take a fish home for the table, many will be returned. The skipper and owners of Anglo Dawn strongly support the need to conserve fish stocks. From 1 April 2015 there is an EU ruling which limits each angler to 3 fish only. We strongly support and agree with this.
We get a variety of sharks in our waters, including Porbeagle, Thresher and Blue shark, with Blue shark being the most common. This is one of the hardest fighting fish that an angler can target in the English Channel. There is no better feeling than having a decent specimen ripping line from your reel. This is the closet that you will get to big game fishing in British waters, and can be great fun for both beginners and the experienced angler. Long periods of the day can be quite relaxing and quiet, but when the blue shark arrives, the game is on! All sharks are measured and returned to the water unharmed. We use very sporting tackle to target these fish. The season runs from June to October. Depending on tide and conditions, we can also bottom fish for other species while waiting for the sharks to turn up.
With the Gulf Stream surrounding this part of Cornwall, we are lucky that we get a large variety of species inhabiting our coastal waters. This is helped further by the wide range of sea bed habitats, from sandy bays and small reefs to the deeper areas further offshore. There is often great fun and competition to be had onboard the boat between anglers, with the person catching the greatest number of different species becoming Angler of the Day. Twenty species in a trip is not uncommon and it’s fun pitting your wits against the different species!
Mackerel trips are great fun for families or individuals, and a are a good introduction to sea fishing for the beginner. Trips normally last for between two and three hours. There’s nothing quite like a freshly caught mackerel on a summer barbeque!
We are quite happy to discuss individual needs or requirements, whether that’s a trip up the coastline, wildlife spotting, photography or just a general family day out on the water. Subject to availability, we can organise a trip based around your wishes. We can vary length, distance and area of travel to suit you. Please call to discuss.
Anglo Dawn is a large stable platform which has plenty of deck space which is suitable for photography, filming, assistance at an event, weddings and any other special requirements.
