Owner description: 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.

We spent another day with Captain Ben and had the same results, "awesome fishing". Captain Ben had us on fish all day. He was great with my boys. He is very patient and helpful and great with young fishermen(13 and 15). Thank you again Captain Ben.

Captain Ben made our week with an outstanding and professional fishing trip. 5 of us enjoyed catching at least 3-5 fish each in a half day trip. Ben delivered on his word to find us Red fish, then Large Redfish, then Sharks. We even had a Huge Tarpin on the line, jumping 5 times before he broke free. My buds,... More

We had a great afternoon fishing with Captain Ben this summer! The boys immediately caught large red drums, and a couple of bonnet head sharks. He was very helpful, patient, and worked hard to give us a terrific fishing experience. He's very good with kids, tells interesting stories, and is just a pleasure to spend time with on the boat....

Capt. Ben made our day on the water one we will always remember. He knew exactly where to go to bring in the big ones and was right beside us to lend a hand or just cheer us on. He knows everything about the area and was very helpful in making recommendations for other things to see and do and... More

Captain Ben took me and my sons(12 & 15) for a half day fishing trip. It was a fantastic family outing. We were on fish from the time we left the dock until we headed home. Captain Ben was extremely knowledgeable, patient and willing to teach my boys new techniques or explain why we were doing things a certain way.... More

My husband and I went out fishing on the ocean for the first time with Captain Ben! We had a fantastic time! I don't fish, but just watching my husband catch his first fish on the ocean was wonderful. He was over the moon! Captain Ben knew exactly what he was doing and where to go and we quickly realized...

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
