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. « less

We had a terrific family fishing morning with Capt. Ben! He kept our two girls (10 & 12 yrs) busy battling beautiful Redfish and my wife and I were clicking away with the cameras. Once he determined their pulling capacity he took us to the spot where the big ones live. Both the girls locked on to a series of... More

I have been out with captain Ben 3 times now. Have caught fish each time. The great part is that he tries to target the species you are looking for, but knows the water so well, that if the fishing isn't good he can put you on other fish right away. Yesterday my wife, my daughter and I went out... More

Capt. Ben Floyd was not only an amazing fishing guide and captain...but shared his abundant knowledge of coastal wildlife and geography. We traveled throughout the morning through marsh, channels and ocean. He was able to spot fish yards away that had their tails out of the water and with one cast, set a hook showing us how it was done.... More

We loved our experience on Ben's boat - perfect size for our group of 6. We did not want to take the time to go out into the ocean, so this was the perfect way to get to see the area and find some great fish without having to travel far. Our skill levels varied greatly within our group and... More

We had a great half day of in shore fishing and caught a bunch of redfish. I would do it again tomorrow if I could. Thanks for a great trip.

We had a blast with Captain Ben, lots of great fishing, interesting places to fish, caught a fair amount of fish in our time. The weather the night before wasn't great causing the fishing to be not so great but still caught the big one. My family and I had a blast getting to know Captain Ben and his fishing... More

Our family and one other family did a 4 hour Family Fishing Tour with Charleston Fishfinder Charters. Captain Ben was so easy to contact and confirmed our time/date/location without any problems. The Isle of Palms marina was easy to find and he met us promptly and without any difficulty. The trip itself was spectacular! The weather was perfect for a... More

We spent a great morning on the water with Capt Ben. Lots of "bending rods and smiling faces." Very family-friendly as Capt Ben got my 9-year-old daughter involved in everything from helping with the baitfish to learning how to fight a fish. We caught at least a dozen redfish with action everywhere we stopped. Capt Ben taught my family a... More

I had a fantastic day fishing with Capt Ben. He delivered exactly what I was looking for, my first cobia and a trophy red. It took about 5 minutes on Ben's cobia spot to have a triple hook up and 4 fish landed. Total sport fishing pandemonium (in the best way possible), with cobia all over the boat. We kept... More

Captain Ben was a great guide and put us on a spot where my 14 yr. old son and I caught the biggest Reds ever! Something we'll never forget. I highly recommend Captain Ben for your fishing adventures in or around Isle of Palms.
