I was first introduced to kite fishing when I went to Puerto Vallarta last year on the Maximus. The whole thing fascinates me. To me kite fishing represents the ultimate MacGyver-ness of fishermen. One of the biggest pains in the ass of bluefin tuna fishing on a sportboat is it is very hard to maneuver a big boat next to school of bluefin tuna without them immediately sinking out. A) Often you have to go to really light test to get a bite from bluefin.
Last week at this time, we were wondering “Where did the offshore scene go? The previous week saw limits style fishing for many pelagic species. Suddenly, that train came to a screeching halt. Lousy conditions characterized the middle part of last week offshore…perhaps created by Hurricane Lidia down below? Where there was once a choice of more traditional paddy hopping activity and/or chasing bluefin, it abruptly became a bluefin or bust scenario.
Just a quick hit, there will be much more content coming out from this trip both on my BD Outdoors column, and here on SCS. Lucky enough to get out on the Pacific Queen with Capt. Gavin Harbour this weekend for a 2 day trip. I had high hopes going into the weekend because the bluefin had finally started to bite on bait the week before. It didn’t disappoint and I got 3 in the 35-45 lb. range (above). I would’ve loved to have gotten one over 100, and the opportunity was around, but it wasn’t to be.
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".
