Next week is already Thanksgiving! Once we get past that holiday, the rest of year is basically a blur. Next thing you know it, it will be 2018. There are a lot of things going on this time of year vying for our attention. For those of us who call ourselves salty, it doesn’t mean we stop. Here are the options left for the last month of the year. I wrote in my last post how I was wondering what Capt. Rick Slavkin of the Oceanside 95 would do for a follow-up last weekend on the yellowfin tuna.
Hey guys, sorry for the late post. I’m up here in San Francisco for the weekend. I came up to fish with my buddies, Nick Lam and Tim Shiau. Tim is a deckhand on Enterprise Sportfishing, and Nick is his buddy that lives up here, but frequently comes down to fish with us in SoCal. Quick little bit of business before I get into the trip though…I wrote last week that Offshore Is Over. Offshore is definitely on its last legs, but it’s NOT quite over just yet.
I admit it. Kind of a click bait sort of title, but let’s review the facts. The boats that summer in San Diego have gone home for the winter. Some boats are already in the yard or getting ready. Traditional offshore fishing…burning a lot of gas looking for paddies, birds working, porpoise, signs of fish etc. is over unless you go long. Water temps have dropped in our local waters. And the all landings fish count for yesterday showed a whopping tally of 5 yellowfin tuna. Offshore season is over.
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".
