Hello, My name is Capt Ben Floyd and Charleston Fishfinder is the name of my company. I provide light tackle and fly fishing charters for beginner and expert fishermen alike. I have been in business for 7 years and I love what I do for a living. Fishing is a way of life where I am from and through some sort of natural progression I have turned it into my livelihood. I am from a small fishing community in South Carolina called McClellanville. At the age of 13 I discovered that I could get paid to take people fishing for fun and for sport. After college at Lander University I moved back home and shortly thereafter I started my business, Charleston Fishfinder. I love my profession and I strive to make every trip as safe, fun, and memorable as possible.

If you want to get on the fish , Captain Ben is the one you want to go with . Went out about 15 miles and caught Red Drum, Blue Fish and Flounder just a few minutes after we got on the spot . Can't go wrong with Charleston Fish Finder Charters!!!

We have fished with Ben on 5 occasions, sometimes in difficult weather conditions, and he has always put us on the fish. During our last charter in ideal weather conditions, three of us caught (and the vast majority were released) approximately 45 fish of multiple species, many of which were very nice fish. Captain Ben is very personable and his... More

Our kids really wanted to go fishing and based on the reviews, we decided to reach out to Charleston Fishfinder Charters. Captain Ben is fantastic! We have three young kids - 6, 8 and 10 and they all thought this was the best activity of our Spring Break to Charleston/IOP. Captain Ben did a great job teaching the kids about... More

When I asked my son what he'd like for his 13th birthday he said "dad, the only gift I really want is to go fishing again with Captain Ben". So, off we went to Isle of Palms. Re-creating magical days can be very elusive and we had set a high bar three years earlier when we had 5 or 6... More

Our family of five are amateurs when it comes to fishing! Captain Ben was patient and great with our kids. He also taught us a lot about the area and fishing. We plan to return again on another fishing expedition when the weather cools down. Thanks for a fun and successful experience!

Captain Ben Floyd clearly demonstrated experience as an angler and knowledge about the area. He involved our teenaged sons in all aspects of the fishing trip.

We had a great time fishing with Captain Ben Floyd. He was so patient with my children. He worked with them to learn new skills and gave them the confidence to bring in fish by themselves. It was s great family experience. And we caught some really big fish. We will be back!

My 10 year old son and I have been out with Captain Ben on five occasions. Each trip we come back satisfied and worn out from reeling them in. If you're looking for a great experience, Captain Ben is your guy. He never disappoints!!

Fished with Ben the afternoon of June 7th. Spend 4hrs trying to find Reds without much luck. Ben was doing everything possible to get us fish and he switched gears making a long run to get good bait rather than the mud Minnos. Once we got the live Menhadden he found us a spot and we hooked several large reds.... More

Fished with Ben again this weekend. This time he found tailing redfish on a very high tide. Had a great time as always and managed to learn some things...
