I have two sons and both have grown up fishing, hunting, and playing outdoors with their old man. Devin, my oldest, is the gear head of the family. Even as a young boy he knew about boats, snowmobiles, and ATV’s like nobody’s business. It’s no surprise that he gravitated to being a mechanic, first working on aircraft and now on vehicles. Austin, my youngest, was less of a gear head than his brother but has always had a rare ability to catch the biggest bass or shoot the largest buck. He is that guy.
The demise of a popular wood carving in downtown Nipigon, Ontario, has inspired a fundraising effort to replace it. On Saturday morning, September 2, Dan Bevilacqua noticed the beloved sculpture was snapped in half. "I drove down Main street in Nipigon and I noticed that part of the fish carving that has been there for about six years was on the ground," he said. "So I went and took a closer look and it looked like a large piece of it had broken off."
As Gord Pyzer explains, the best mid-summer pike locations offer quick and easy access to deep water and the forage fish that swim in it. (Photo credit: Gord Pyzer)
While the spot has a superb section of flat, shallow, warm water, the structure also breaks quickly into the main basin of the lake. And it is the secret ingredient that makes it and other spots like it, shine. If a big northern pike or muskie wants to dine on a whitefish or herring, it can slide out quickly and grab it.
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".
