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.

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...

I started taking my daughter and son with Capt Ben 8 years ago . He really knows the local waters and knows where the fish are. I will look forward to another trip with him soon. Thanks Ben!

this is my 2nd trip with Capt. Ben and this one was better than the first. The first was good, but this one we went offshore and fished for sheepshead. I'd say we fished for 3hours and caught roughly 60 fish in total, so very successful. We kept about 20 big one and am having some very good dinners from... More

A friend and I took our ten year old kids out with Captain Floyd on March 29th. If you want the short and sweet review, it was amazing! For starters, while it was a beautiful spring day, the wind had picked up the previous night. This made for some challenging conditions for the afternoon. Even though this was the case,... More
