Fishing captain finds unique way to go after red snapper

While most anglers are sending baits down 100 or more feet to target the bottom dwelling red snapper, Capt. Jack Vasilaros does something a little more unique. Vasilaros has begun to target them on the surface by chumming them all the way from the bottom, then hooks them using no weight and lighter tackle. It takes patience, and the right spot, but a method Vasilaros says gets the bigger fish.

Don't let mosquitoes ruin your camping trip; try this radius zone repellent

While daydreaming about that perfect camping trip, you might think about your traveling companions, the scenic setting, and the relaxing night under the stars next to a fire with a s'more in one hand and a drink in the other. And when you get there, it all comes together with just one uninvited exception – the mosquitoes. Unfortunately mosquitoes are a part of life in the outdoors, and while you can spray yourself down with DEET for protection, it isn't pleasant. The Thermacell Radius Zone Mosquito Repellent is another option that works particularly well at a campsite.

Leslie Barker: Tired early in your workout? Keep going

Have you ever started a workout with bunches – or at least a decent amount – of energy, only to feel zapped way too early? I have, especially on these mornings with humidity thick as split-pea soup. I start out, water bottle and optimism at the ready, then a half-mile in start thinking, "Are you kidding? I can't do this."

Camelbak vest perfect for those mountain biking on narrow trails

Riding narrow single-track trails on your mountain bike can be one of the great joys of summer. Surrounded by a canopy of trees, you can enjoy the lush forest as you twist and turn over the rugged terrain. The difficult climbs are followed by a freewheeling descents, and you're constantly on the lookout for roots, rocks and overhanging branches. Bending down to grab a water bottle from its cage isn't always an easy option – and you should probably be drinking more often anyway. The Camelbak Chase Bike Vest is targeted at those off-road riders who want easy access to water throughout the whole ride.
