Numbers Rooster is licensed for 12 anglers. If you charter privately the decision on numbers is yours, provided there are not more than 12. In practice most groups limit themselves to between six and ten anglers. With individuals we normally restrict numbers to around eight. Extra angling boats can be arranged if required.

The skipper

"My first experience of Baltimore was as an angler in 1971. This proved to be the first of many visits, ending with a permanent move here to skipper in 1979. Rooster is my third boat since then.
Nick Dent, skipper of sea angling boat 'Rooster'
"For a UK angler like me Baltimore was a bit of a revelation. Many of the species and the techniques used to catch them are familiar, but in terms of fish stocks it is like going back in time. And there is always something special about fishing in Ireland . . . even in its heyday fishing back home was never quite like this!"
