This was a perfect fishing trip for our family! Troy and Stephen made it so much fun for everyone! I would totally recommend Distraction Charters. We caught lots of fish the whole day! I was very surprised! If they weren't biting within a few minutes Troy would move us along to a better place. Troy is also an excellent photographer... More

If you’re looking for a great charter boat fishing experience in Orange Beach, look no further than Captain Troy with Distraction Charters. Searching the internet, I am always skeptical of anyone loaded with 5 star ratings. Well, you will not regret booking with Captain Troy. Reasons? 1) You are treated like family, on a family-oriented fun trip. Troy and first... More

This fishing trip was exactly what was promised. Troy and his mate Stephen were perfect hosts for our family (including a 4 and 6 year old). We were comfortable, happy, and having the best time fishing together. Troy put us on fish, and then went the extra mile to take pictures and video! More than that, he was making sure... More

I found Captain Troy via the great reviews here. Thanks to all the prior reviewers for leading me to the best part of our Summer vacation! I have fished all over the Gulf coast and never had a better experience than I had with Captain "T-Roy" and his great mate, Stephen. We had six folks in our party, ranging from... More

Captain Troy Frady and Stephen, the deck hand, was great with kids. We all can't wait to go back next year. The kids loved Captain Troy. This is definitely a family attraction. Safety was first with Captain Troy. You could tell they truly enjoyed helping the kids and the kids could tell too. He knew where the fish were too.... More

Troy and Stephen provide an outstanding experience for the whole family. They are great with kids and help them have a great trip and catch and understand the fish and the gulf. I will always book with Troy every year for our vacation with the grand kids. Thanks a lot Troy and Stephen.

I was looking for something fun and memorable on our family vacation and I'm sure glad we booked a fishing charter with Troy! My 9 year old son wanted some hardcore fishing and my 16 year old daughter and her friend had to be coaxed a little to come along. We all had a blast! Lots of great fishing action... More
