Fin Twisters Fishing Guide Services

140 Deadmans Lane
Buras LA, United States

Fin Twisters Fishing Guide Services will tailor make your perfect fishing adventure in Venice, Louisiana, and the Lower Mississippi River Delta. Whether you are into chasing the Bull Reds and Speckled Trout in the deep inshore marshes, or you want to catch an offshore fish like Yellowfin Tuna, this is your charter.

Run by a professional and flexible Captain Walter Heathcock, this charter is made for pure pleasure. He grew up fishing the Louisiana waters and has done both commercial fishing and guide fishing. He has also shrimped the waters from Mississippi to almost Texas and has committed to guiding in the past few years.

Captain Walter operates a 24 foot Blue Wave saltwater fishing boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 50 knots. The boat is equipped with all the safety equipment and electronics needed to make a trip safe and successful. It also contains a live well and an icebox for your catch, and an excellent trolling motor to make it super quiet on the water.

This speedy vessel is perfect for the shallow waters and marshes of Buras and the surrounding area. It can quickly and efficiently get you to the hidden and productive fishing spots where you can fish for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and the super delicious Flounder. Alternatively, you can travel to the nearshore waters to target Snapper and Black Drum, or offshore in search of the great Yellowfin Tuna. 

Fin Twisters Fishing Guide Services can offer a day of adventure to remember for an affordable price, and can also take you on a seeing tour of the Lower Mississippi River Delta.

I'm 32 years old born and raised in the louisiana waters, from Commerical fishing to guide fishing. My dad raised me in the Mississippi River delta commercial fishing, so I have had a lot of cool experiences and memories on the water. I've shrimped the waters from Mississippi to almost Texas, and now for the past couple years been enjoying Guiding.

Top notch experience. Captain Walter asked what I wanted to catch.  I told him I wanted to fill my freezer with a variety. He responded “we going on a meat haul”.  Right from the start he made it his personal mission to catch our limit in redfish. Which we did by 11:30.  After he said we going “exploring”. Which, looking back on it I find funny because he know exactly where he was going, what depth the fish would be at and what kind of fish would be there.  Without fail he was right.  Between the two of us I went home with 72 lbs of fish!  My freezer any neighbors freezer’s are full!  Thanks Captain Walter!
