Bass fishing doesn't get more exciting than dropping soft-plastics to overly fat fish at the end of the continent's largest river. Last week, Todd Masson and Jeff Bruhl overcame tough conditions to waylay the bass and capture incredible footage. There are several keys to success when fishing the winding roseau stands near Venice. The first is to go when the tide is falling, focusing effort on the back half of the falling tide.
Sometimes success on the water takes great skill, fine precision and impeccable timing. Right now is not one of those times. With the weather stable and massive schools of speckled trout flooding the marshes, the action along the Louisiana coast is incomparable. Just how good is it? Well, Todd Masson and Capt. Lane Zimmer set out this week to intercept the specks that are moving into the interior marshes, and their success level was like something from a video game.
Most anglers are aware that speckled trout retreat to deep-water haunts every time Jack Frost blows freezing air from the plains of Canada to the marshes of the Bayou State. What fewer realize, however, is that speckled trout are available in deep water during the other seasons. Twelve months of the year, specks hold in water deeper than 10 feet at platform legs, bridge pilings or along ledge walls. For many anglers, however, these fish may as well be on the moon.
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".
