We have just had the time of our lives and lots of stories to tell. Captain Troy Frady turned us on to some big game fish plus the biggest shark caught in two seasons. We had a great family outing with my Dad, Mom, Wife, and Brother. This is one of the best trips to date. Forget about those big... More

This was the most incredible fishing trip I have ever experienced. Captain Troy and his deckhand Stephen were absolutely the kindest and hospitable hosts I could ask for. There professionalism combined with there knowledge about the fish and the marine environment were amazing. They showed us things that we would have never seen if they had not said "hey look...

Before the Internet existed finding a good Captain and crew was hit or miss. Well, you have the Internet and you may search no further. Captain Troy Frady and his deck hand Stephen were the real deal. They lived up to every word that their web site www.distractioncharters.com promised. Both are very friendly and family-oriented and they work hard at... More

We were very pleased on our charter with Captain Troy and deckhand Stephen. They both worked very hard to provide the trip we requested. We all had a great day on the water. Awesome pics and video to prove our successes provided a nice touch.

We did the 6 hour trip and it could not have been better. There were 3 of us and we were catching fish left and right (red snappers, trigger fish, bonita, king mackerel), there was a pod of dolphins hanging around the boat for a while. Topped the trip off by catching a 10 ft bull shark, pretty incredible.

This was my very first experience saltwater fishing, and I really appreciated Capt. Troy and his deckhand Stephen's hard work to provide exactly what kind of experience his guests were looking for (and we were treated as guests, not just customers). Very professional but also fun and laid back, safety first at all times, (a big plus putting me and... More

Everything was as expected and beyond. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 64, and it was the highlight of a wonderful spring break in Orange Beach. Our hats are off to Troy and Stephen, hope to see you again next year.

If you are looking for a awesome fishing trip to take the family on, I extremely recommend Distraction Charters. Troy allowed my one year old to go unlike the other charters in the area. They interacted with all of us and they were so good with my one year old. Troy and Stephen made the trip so much fun with... More

Captain Troy and Stephen took us on the best fishing trip over our Spring Break! I had the pleasure of joining my three young nieces (4,6 and 7) and their parents on the girls’ first charter fishing experience. Captain Troy sat the girls down and quickly taught them what they needed to know about the ins and outs of fishing... More
