Captain Troy and Stephen are amazing. My husband, myself, and 3 girls (ages 15, 16, and 12) had the best fishing trip of all time! We've chartered several trips in the past in different locations and have never had more fun than we did with these guys. They made us all feel comfortable with the equipment and took us right...

This by far was the best spring break excursion we've ever had. Troy and his deck hand Stephen were top notch professionals. They did exactly what was advertised. It was a comfortable relaxed fishing trip. Troy handled the boat and Stephen took care of all the fishing equipment. Once we got set up it was almost non stop fishing. We... More

My family and I went out with captain Troy and deck hand Stephen last week. We were rained out on the intended day, and he was wonderful to reschedule. Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly and professional attitudes. We hopped on the boat and captain Troy began going over all safety precautions and what we could expect for the... More

We had a great time with Distraction Charters! Captian Troy was very pleasant, humorous, knowledgeable,and accommodating. It was a great atmosphere for family and friends of any age. We had tons of fun and caught lots of fish. It was by far the best charter fishing trip I've been on before. We even received a cd with pictures and video... More

We took our son on Distraction when he was just 8 years old. We had such a great time back then, we decided to do it again. It was even better the second trip. Our son, now almost 15, had a blast catching one red snapper after the other. I enjoyed watching the dolphins, and we all adore Troy. He... More

My wife gave me the gift of a deep-sea fishing charter for Christmas. I guess winter is a slow season for fishing charters, as we contacted three charters and only one of them got back to us. That was Distraction Charters, and they replied promptly. We were contacted directly by captain Troy and he was helpful in organizing the trip... More

We are a corporate couple who went looking for an adventurous escape from our concrete jungle and Captain Troy’s 6-hour deep sea fishing trip was the perfect “Distraction” for us. Of course we were hoping to catch a few fish, but mostly we just wanted to get out on the water and share a fun, new experience. To our surprise,... More

On a recent trip over fall break we took our family to Orange Beach, AL. Being from northern Indiana, we were happy to get to the coast and enjoy some sunshine and 79 degree weather. We decided on this trip to fulfill a promise to our 14 year old son and go on a chartered fishing trip. With children 10,... More
