Family Fishing Begins With The Charter Boat Distraction


When you allow us to serve your family, you will experience something so valuable, it can’t be found elsewhere!

When you allow Captain Troy and the Distraction crew to serve your family, you will experience something so fascinating and valuable, that it can’t be found anywhere else in the charter fishing industry.   We listen to you and always hear what you are saying.  Whether you have 1 or 6 people in your group, each one of you will be treated like one of the family.   We act honorably and respectfully around your family and treat you with unconditional love and kindness.  Words are cheap, but our actions will show you how much we care about you getting the best fishing trip available.

We are open year round, but our busy season begins each year at the beginning of March with Spring Break and continues through the end of October.  Our busiest time is from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  During this peak time period, we offer two 6 hour trips daily.  We suggest you book your trip early in the season, so you will get the preferred date and time you like.  Mornings are the most popular trips for early risers, but afternoon trips catch just as many fish as mornings, but you get to sleep a little later.  All of our charter trips are “G” Rated, Family and Kid friendly with an option to “Keep A Few For Dinner” (KAF) or “Catch, Photograph and Release” (CPR).  Important – We book our own trips through this website only.  There are no middle men taking a cut off the top, so we can keep our rates very competitive for you.   We also build our own private fishing reefs that nobody knows about.  These things contribute to you getting the best trip possible.

Making Sure We Are The Right Fishing Charter For Your Family!

We love our family just like you love yours.  We do our research about certain activities before we invest in them.  Before you decide to book a trip with us, we encourage you to read our entire website so you will see what we do for family’s like yours.  This way, you will be assured that your family is getting exactly what you expect and the best return on your investment.   We had rather be up front with you and tell you everything you can expect, than to embellish about something and later find out that we let you down.

We are solution providers for family’s who want their family to be treated with respect.  What we offer you is a chance to go fishing offshore without worrying about a thing.  We calm mom’s fears, get your kids hearts beating with anticipation, help dad unwind and make grandparents feel like they have the best family in the world.  When you get off our boat, we want you to feel better about yourself than you did before before you got on the boat!

We enjoy watching children’s faces while they reel in their first fish.  You will too!

Family’s Trust Our Deep Sea Fishing Trips For A Reason

When we started our charter fishing company in Orange Beach back in 2002, we knew we had something special to offer first timers and family’s with small children.   Even today, the level of service we provide for family’s is unmatched and unheard of in the deep sea fishing industry.  The problem we identified when looking for a fishing charter, it is important to finding one who doesn’t act like an eager salesman just trying to sell you a fishing trip.  That is now who we are at all.

After listening to our customers for almost two decades, we found out that they want someone who makes an honest effort to put them on the fish, tells the truth about what to expect, is transparent and doesn’t over promise and under deliver.   To us as parents and grandparents, it is important to find a company with a proven track record of being a reputable family friendly fishing charter that you can trust around your wife and kids.

What we do for family’s in the charter fishing industry has been extremely rewarding for everyone.  Just knowing that so many people trust us to always put their interest ahead of our personal gain, is especially rewarding.


Some Fish Your Kids Catch, Are Bigger Than Usual!

Knowing Our Charter Fishing Customers

We like customers and their children to ask a million questions.  That is something we cherish.  Captain Troy is married to an early childhood/special-ed teacher and Corey the mate is an elementary school teacher himself.  As you can probably tell, we are all about education.

Over the years, we found out that our customers are just like us and they want the same things.  They love their family’s deeply and value life experiences more than possessions.   Our customers feel strongly about conservation and a majority of them only want enough fish for a few meals.   Many of them release all of their fish, because they don’t want to deal with storing or transporting them.


Families know we love them and will always do our best to make them happy!

If you want someone to treat you right, remember we offer the right amount of southern hospitality and charm, and combine it with some kindness, exceptional customer service and light tackle action and everything turns out just right, every trip.  We even offer our customers low price fish mounts for those who want a little more than a photograph to help them remember their charter trip.

Fishing Experiences Are Way More Valuable Than Possessions


Imagine your 12 year old catching a big mangrove snapper on his first fishing trip!

Trying to keep up with the Jones’es by buying the latest and greatest objects stresses everyone out, including us.  In our opinion, we believe our fishing experiences and quality photographs are what you need to be accumulating with your kids.  Nobody remembers what they got for Christmas, but they will always remember the time you took them fishing.  Everyone knows that fishing experiences are enjoyable from the planning stages all the way through the implementation of the trip.

We love seeing grandpa spend time with his grand children with grandma looking on!

Guaranteed – To Be Unlike Any Other Fishing Charter Around


Sharing our love for fishing with your kids is what we are all about!

We are not an alternative to other charters in Orange Beach.  There is a huge difference between we do for you and what our competitors advertise.  Sure, all charter boats near Gulf Shores, Alabama and Perdido Key, Florida take people deep sea fishing.   Fishing is what you do while you are on our boat.   An education is with some unique experiences is what you come away with.  Nobody else in our industry comes close what we do for you.  Being your servant, is the most rewarding things we have ever done.


Red Snapper wiggle when you take their picture.

One of the biggest differences about us is, we are professional anglers and stewards of our marine resources.  We are not hard core anglers that put a lot of pressure on you to fill the cooler with fish and force you to keep every fish you catch, no matter the size.   Actually, we will not take anyone fishing who only wants to fill the cooler.  That’s not what we do.  We take people fishing who want to catch fish and have a good experience.
