Wow! What a difference a couple of weeks make. First the sea bass season ended, then the flounder season ended. Things slowed quickly, but not totally. It’s very strange, but totally expected as a “dead season” has begun. Let’s hope it doesn’t last long. We have some news from the very end of flounder season, plus word of other fish that are filling the void. A couple big tog made the report, tilefish were reported, and blues and triggerfish were abound.
That’s a wrap. Put it in the books. The 2017 summer flounder season is now officially over. Despite the windy weather, anglers got out and fish were caught. The theme of hope I heard mentioned was that the mullet would start their fall run early and attract weakfish, bluefish and stripers. This would help the boats, stores and marinas that rely on a good September of fishing.
Well, the wind and the coastal storm cost us a few days on the water. No worry though, as some still forced through the weekend wind before all was shut down as the week began. We still have fishing news, the conclusion of the Mid-Atlantic Tournament, plus news of an important fishing related meeting that is coming up. Let us proceed. From Jim’s Bait and Tackle, Matt starts with word that “plenty of fluke” are still at the reef.
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".
