Over a two-day trip, a group of three anglers caught snook, tripletails, jacks, sea trout, lemon sharks, mutton snappers, dolphins and a barracuda and kingfish

The fishermen were north of the Flamingo boat ramp on their first day, then moved offshore of Marathon for the second day of their trip

Daytime boats out of Haulover Marina are catching grouper to 25 pounds and mutton and vermillion snappers on the bottom, and kingfish to 45 pounds, bonitos, wahoo, blackfin tuna, sailfish and dolphins on or near the surface

Marmot jacket perfect for any hiking trail

You don't necessarily think of a jacket as summertime gear, but when you run into bad weather on the hiking trail - particularly at altitude - you quickly discover how important it can be. The Marmot Red Star is a high-tech jacket that manages to be both waterproof and comfortable. Made with a three-layer NanoPro stretch fabric (a proprietary Marmot product), the Red Star keeps water out, even in the strongest downpours. After the storm, the Red Star's underarm vents will help if you start to overheat on the trail and help you dry out.

A stuntwoman reveals her fascinating workout regimen

You may have heard of stunt woman Jessie Graff. Earlier this summer, the talented 32-year-old donned a two-piece Wonder Woman outfit and dominated the "American Ninja Warrior" course, giving other competitors serious competition. But even if you never heard of Graff, chances are, you've seen her work on film and television. She's done stuntwork for "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "Live Free or Die Hard," "The Dark Knight," "Supergirl," "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," and "Hawaii Five-0" just to name a few.

Camping hammock provides alternative sleeping arrangement

Camping hammocks have been soaring in popularity in recent years, as more campers discover that sleeping above the ground can be more comfortable than the alternative. Even if you still prefer to sleep in a tent - preferably with a good air mattress underneath you - a hammock is a great campsite addition, excellent for reading and relaxing. The Doublenest Hammock from Eagle Nest Outfitters is made from high-tenacity nylon - meaning it's very sturdy and very lightweight. At 19 ounces, it's easy to store in a backpack and compresses into a 5-inch by 5-inch pouch. It comes with all the gear you'll need to attach it to a couple of trees and start your vacation.

How to fillet a lionfish

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff Meaghan Faletti shows you how to fillet a lionfish. A nonnative invasive species, lionfish have a negative impact on native wildlife and habitat. You can help control the lionfish population by removing them from Florida waters whenever possible. Lionfish have venomous spines, so use care when filleting so that you don't get stuck, but the meat does not have poison in it and is often eaten and served in restaurants. Some compare this flaky and tasty fish's flavor to that of the popular hogfish.
