It was a great time with fantastic weather. The fishing biting was non-stop and I had to take a rest! The Captian took us to where the fish were and it was an enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend to anyone that wishes to deep sea fish!

Hard to know who to book a trip with when you first start looking. I did a fair bit of research and decided to go with Capt. Troy. (1) Big, nice, clean boat. (2) A man that enjoys what he does and wants you to have a great time. We caught a lot of fish and when the bites slowed... More

Excellent crew, we were well taken care of. Capt went out of his way to ensure we all had a great time on 10 hour extend fishing trip. We caught a tagged fish, first experience with that, and the capt and first mate went out of their way to explain what it was. The tagged fish resulted in a $250... More

We had the best time with Captain Troy! I have never been on a more fun and exciting fishing trip! The action never stopped! We caught so many that I lost count. Capt. Troy was on time and ready when we arrived with everything we needed for our trip. His boat was clean and well taken care of...beautifully refurbished. One... More

Distraction Charters is a great deep sea fishing trip for families. If you are looking for your kids to enjoy a few hours of fishing, this is the charter for you. 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...
