Private Charters NPI – Miss Leilani

Get out to the deepest waters of the Gulf and spend up to 16 hours fishing for some monster species with Private Charters NPI. Leave Port Aransas behind and discover some serious offshore fishing with the captain. With decades of experience in running charters, he’s just the guy to show you the sweet spots and to help you fill the boat. He promises to do whatever he can to make your fishing dreams come true.

The 35’ Luhrs offshore sportfishing boat is specially designed to get you fishing the deep waters. Accustomed to doing long trips out, she boasts comfortable covered seating in the cabin, including a stylish interior. Up to 6 guests are invited aboard to make yourselves at home on trips ranging from 6 to 16 hours.

When it comes to the fishing, you’ll find everything you need for a productive day on the water. Captain will stock the boat with bait before you come aboard, and he’ll set up the trolling lines from the outriggers to get you covering a wide area of the water. Using the latest rods and reels, you’ll switch between bottom fishing along the wrecks and trolling the open waters to get the best results.

As with most fishing, the further out you get the bigger the fish. On longer trips, you can expect to enter into battle with some seriously sought-after fish. Target majestic Marlin, Sailfish, and monster Tuna and Mahi Mahi for the fight of your life in the deep.

Along the wrecks, you’ll go after a range of delicious fish, like Snappers, Groupers, Cobia, and many more. These tasty creatures will also put up a fight, so get ready to bring your A-game to fill the boat.

You’ll get to take your catch home at the end of the day, so come with a hunger to fill the freezer and you could be stacking up on the Gulf’s delicacies for months to come. Just make sure to bring some drinks and snacks aboard to make the most of your day, and you’re in for the fishing adventure of a lifetime. Hop aboard Private Charters NPI and let the magic begin.
