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.

I haven't had a desire to go fishing ever! My husband wanted to go, so I went to sit in the sun on a boat. However, I loved the fishing. Captain Ben knows the best places to fish. He is so much fun and knows his stuff. I caught more than my husband. This was the highlight of our awesome... More

Excellent experience on the waters with Captain Ben. We booked a four hour charter so our 3 teenaged sons could experience salt water fishing.The captain was diligent and hardworking to ensure the best experience for them. He took time to involve and educate them along the way. They caught stingray, sea bass and some gigantic red fish. They enjoyed every... More

This was our second trip in two years with Captain Ben. Last year he took us inshore looking for reds, but alas the two monsters we caught were too big to keep. So this year we decided on the near shore half day trip, which takes you 2-3 miles out around some wrecks and/or ballast rocks. Ben knows all the... More

Four of us went out with Capt. Ben Floyd Saturday, 07/11/15. Fished the wrecks around 20 miles out of Isle of Palms and caught big numbers of Amberjack and Cobia. We were on his Conch 27. Very smooth ride and the driest riding center console I've been on. Had two 18 year old guys with us who had never been... More

Had a reel nice day on the water with Capt Ben. He was very laid back and pleasant to be around for 4hours. He took extra time with the youngest on board teaching him the ins and outs of fishing etc. Capt Ben was able to put us on some big fish and even caught a shark. I'd definitely use... More

Fished with Capt Ben again this weekend and had a blast as usual. I didn't have the kids with me this time so we ran out in the ocean for some bottom fishing. Always something new for me as this time we wrestled AJ on the fly. Another awesome experience!

Captain Ben kept us on the fish! I highly recommend this charter if you are visiting Isle of Palms. He knows where the fish are and can accommodate all skill levels. We all had a great time and can't wait to do it again!
