Fishing is about to be in full swing with spawning bass followed by crappie and bream. And there's no shortage of great fishing opportunities in Mississippi with its many lakes and rivers. Even so, here are three lakes that you'll want to put on your to-do list for some of the best bass, bream and crappie fishing around. Catching a largemouth bass over 10 pounds is a feat that not every angler will ever achieve, but there is a lake where your odds of doing so are better.
Following last week's announcement by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks that the initial batch of chronic wasting disease test results came back negative, results from a second batch of tests were released this week. "Sixty four deer test results were returned and CWD was not detected," said Russ Walsh, MDWFP Executive Director of Wildlife. "It was either roadkill or sick deer that were called in to us. "A lot of that is routine. We've been routinely picking up roadkills."
Depending on where you are in the state, some of the best fishing of the year could already be taking place. Along with that comes thousands of fishermen, lines at boat launches and, of course, conflicts caused by people who are inexperienced or just don't know the rules of the ramp. So, here are a few tips on launching a boat for the new boat owner or occasional fisherman that will help keep you from being "that guy" on a busy day at the lake. We've all seen it and we know what's coming next.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
