You gotta LOVE catching REDFISH
Fly Fishermen Welcome
Welcome to benalderman.com! As a full-time inshore guide in Charleston since 1996, I have had the pleasure to entertain thousands of guests of all skill levels and I still LOVE what I do. Whether you enjoy fly fishing, spin, or bait, I'll work hard to assure you accomplish your angling goals and most importantly have FUN.
Redfish are my favorite and my specialty, but many other seasonal species are available throughout the year. Summer charter fishing is great for families as the flats and beaches are teeming with sharks, ladyfish, trout, flounder and many other critters sure to keep the kid's interest peaked. The fall and winter are my favorite time of the year, as the fish school up and the water gets clear. One of the great things about inshore fishing in Charleston is you never get bored; the tactics and fishing change with the seasons, fronts and tides. Hiring an experienced guide gives you the best chance to put all the pieces together for a trip of a lifetime.
I run most of my inshore fishing charters out of the Isle of Palms Marina, but I trailer my Maverick skiff, so I pick up various other places around Charleston County like Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant and Garris Landing in Awendaw. Fishing Charter times are usually determined by the tides, but an early morning start is usually the norm.
20 years in the inshore fishing charter business has mellowed me and taught me a great deal; not only about how to catch more fish, but how to tailor my trips to the wishes of my anglers. If you're a hard core fly fisherman, I've been one myself for a long time and I know just how to position you for productive opportunities. I can help you improve your cast if you like, or I can shut up and let you do your thing. I'm a redfish tournament angler as well, so tossing artificials with spinning and casting rods are right up my alley. You don't fish as long as I have, without mastering the art of bait fishing. If keeping the rods bent on the bait du jour is more your style, I'll do my best to send you home with sore wrists from reeling them all in! I have a teenage son and I had a great dad, so father-son (and the occasional daddy-daughter) trips, are my favorite. You can't beat making memories with your kids on the water!
Don't let the cool weather keep you off the water! Clear water teeming with hungry fish will make you forget all about the temperature. Book your trip today for best availability.
