Meet Captain Troy Birchfield
Meet USCG Licensed Captain Troy Birchfield. Although born in Michigan, where he met his wife of 38 years, the couple relocated to Florida full time in the 1990s.
Capt. Troy opened his first guide service in Crystal River in 1996 running trips to Tampa and the Florida Keys, with his wife Suzanne working as his first mate.
Moving to Destin in 2016 the couple purchased the “Reel Chill” in 2016. At this time Suzanne obtained her Master Captain Credentials, and now works as a back up captain on extended voyages and loves to work the deck with children and those unexperienced anglers.
Meet Captain Suzanne Birchfield
A licensed Master Captain, Capt. Suzanne works as a back up captain on extended voyages and loves to work the deck with our guests – especially children and those less experienced anglers that require patience and assistance learning the ropes.
Capt. Suzanne says, “We enjoy teaching newcomers different fishing techniques and seeing their delighted faces when they catch their first fish and will stop at nothing to make sure you get what you want!”
A Bit About the “Reel Chill”
The name of the boat, “Reel Chill” says it all! On this charter boat you will not hear foul words between captain and crew – this boat is a “stress-free zone” and is 100% focused on creating special memories and fun times for our guests!
Reel Chill Charters will make everyone feel like expert anglers, reeling in huge game fish such as wahoo, king mackerel, cobia, mahi mahi and more!

What a thrill to spend some time fishing with Capt. Troy! The boat is beautiful and very comfortable, Captain is very knowledgable and family orientated. We were in good hands with him and had the pleasure of having his wife assisting us on board. We look forward to our return trip!
