Troy (captain) was great with the kids and Cory (deckhand) did a good job of educating us on the fish my kids were looking at. My kids caught a... More

While planning a first time trip to Gulf Shores area, I spent a lot of time looking into fishing trips. Nothing stood out to me until I found the website created by Distraction Charters. It was well written, very informative, and you could tell they were interested in giving you the "whole truth" about all types of fishing charters in... More

Captain Troy is a very friendly and family oriented person. This trip was one of my best ever and I give my highest recommendations if you want a memorable trip. Our day started off catching some amber jacks and I caught my personal best right off the bat. A huge 40-50lb amber jack. Another with us caught a very large... More

Captain Troy is a benchmark to which we compare other fishing charters and no one can measure up to his standard of excellence. He is great with the entire family, keeping everyone engaged and excited about the sport of fishing. We plan on being with him again the next time we visit the area. Troy and first mate Kyle were...

Contacted Capt. Troy about doing a shortened fishing charter due to our time constraints. Troy was more than accommodating to fit in our trip. Capt. Troy and first mate Corey were at the boat and ready to go when we showed up. We were fishing in no time and had our first catch within 30 minutes of the trip. We... More

Two buddies and I went out on a 6 hr trip. We asked if we could extend to 8 hours if wanted, After 6 hours with Captain Ruben and deck hand Josh we had caught all the fish we could could want and more. I suggest to go with more than three people too help reel in fish. Josh has... More
