It’s another great day here in ‘God’s Country’. Personally, I have taken for granted the beauty of the creation that surrounds us. Being on the water and enjoying nature is my exhale. My escape. Have you ever been away on a trip for a while and when you got back home you were struck with what a beautiful place we live at? Look up and around, away from your personal devices. You may be amazed. We are blessed people. How about a change of pace?
Here is some food for thought. This was written of a piece of paper that I found in my grandma’s bible. I sure hope that some day this could be said of me. “Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you“. As anglers, we all look forward to two seasons, spring and fall. The kick off of the fall bite is always after the Labor Day weekend. Now that there has been a drop in water temperature, the bass bite will really start to pick up.
“It’s that most wonderful time of the year! Ding-dong, Ding-dong, Ding !”No, it’s not Christmas yet but it is wonderful! The kids are back in school! The last Summer holiday is behind us! Our waterways once again belong to the anglers! And the best fishin’ of the season will soon be here. The Fall bite is the best because the bass only have one thing on their minds: eat, eat, and eat. Unlike the Spring season, the bass are thinking about spawning and eating.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
