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 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.
