__ Just got back from a short stay in Venice, Louisiana, where we initially joined SFTV and Capt. Greg Dini of flywaterexpeditions.com for some big redfish action. After prodcution wrapped up, I fished with Capt. Nick Sassic of mosquitolagoonflyfishing.com. Just as always, the fishing was outstanding. Here's a few shots from the last two days of fishing! PHOTO: Spent the first part of the day throwing poppers to smaller reds. They were all over them!John Frazier
