King Slayer Charters

King Slayer Charters takes you fishing out of Panama City, FL. Captain John will make sure you have an enjoyable day on the water. No matter how experienced you are, you’ll find a worthy opponent around these fisheries. Come chase Spanish Mackerel and Sharks, or go after Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Mahi.

Captain John has been fishing for 25 years and has been a captain for over 5 years. He is local to the area and loves seeing his customers get their dream catch. He loves trolling for Kingfish the best. Your safety onboard is Captain John’s top priority and he will also work to turn your fishing trip into a lasting memory. You will decide how you want to spend the day on the water but the captain will help out with any questions about techniques and species available.

You will be fishing from a 28’ Cape Horn center console powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha engines. She features navigational electronics and has room for up to six anglers. The boat features a live bait well, has a large ice box, carries Penn gear, as well as one electric reel for the elderly or anglers with disabilities.

Fishing trips with Capt. John will see you fishing up to 9 miles offshore. You can choose to explore inshore fisheries or head into the bay slow trolling for Mackerel, or bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper.

You can purchase live bait onboard. Catch cleaning may be available, but you best talk to the captain about it. Trips normally leave out of Pier 98 in Callaway FL, but pickups at other areas may be arranged. The captain also runs specials throughout the year, so please check back.

King Slayer Charters can accommodate anglers of any level of fishing experience. You can use all types of bait and fishing styles to get the best chance for the best catch. Capt. John will work to make you happy and give you a trip of a lifetime. Hope you come back again to go after a bigger one!
