During these slow times for fishing, I want to take the opportunity to encourage anglers to send in fishing reports. Many are reluctant due to the fact that they do not want to divulge their favorite and or secret fishing spot and then have to deal with the added competition brought on by publicizing it.That is quite understandable and is something we honor when requested not to give out the exact location of a nice catch.
Now that the worst is over, we are in the “wait and see” period when the damage to our fish stocks will be assessed. Hopefully, the fish kills that occurred were not of the magnitude to make a significant impact on our stocks of trout and other fish.Going beyond that, the question many anglers have is how will our fishing be when conditions improve?In regard to that question, let me share my experiences with the after effects of hard freezes.
Wednesday definitely was not a day to be outside. Obviously nothing was taking place in the way of fishing and the thing on most anglers’ minds was not whether there was a fish kill, but the magnitude of it.Prior to the hard freeze that was associated with the recent cold front, we were seeing fish kills in several locations. Most of the fatalities were forage fish; however, there were game fish among the carcasses.
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".
