Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 12:20 pm. Today we have 9:47 hours of daylight. For shallow water fishing the twilight periods are often the most productive fishing times, especially on days when a major or minor time will coincide with twilight. In low light conditions predators have better cover for their ambush and often hunt in shallow water.

Next New Moon in 14 days on 1st February
Full Moon is generally a productive time for fishing - especially night fishing. Bright nights mean that many predators feed more actively during the night. During full moon the gravitational pull is in line with the gravitational pull of the sun, affecting all wildlife and increasing feeding behaviour.
  • Distance to earth:
    401,563 km
    9.7 %
We can compare the current moon distance to it's minimum and maximum distance from earth and express that as proximity. A high proximity means the moon is closer to earth. At 50% it would be at it's mean distance. A high proximity causes big tides, currents and has a direct effect on increased bite times. A proximity greater than 90% indicates a super moon.

The Solunarclock displays the best fishing times on a 24 hour clock. Green areas represent major bite times, yellow minor bite times, blue high and low tides, the center displays the moon phase and illumination (100%).
Best fishing times:
  • minor Time:
    06:31 am - 08:31 am
  • major Time:
    11:11 am - 01:11 pm
  • minor Time:
    03:52 pm - 05:52 pm
  • major Time:
    10:40 pm - 12:40 am

All times are displayed in the America/New_York timezone and are automatically adjusted to daylight savings. The current timezone offset is -5 hours. Green and yellow areas indicate the best fishing times (major and minor). Blue areas indicate high and low tides. The center shows the current moon phase which is a Full Moon at 100% lumination. According to the Solunar Theory, today is a poor day for fishing, but you need to cross check this with the current weather forecast for a final decision. Today some bite times coincide with sunrise or sunset. Those will be particularly good times for fishing and are indicated by sun icons. The next best fishing time ( ) starts in 4 hours and 44 minutes. The gray time indicator displays the current local time.

high 08:25 pm 2.66 ft

Tide Coefficient at 08:18 am is 65
Tide Coefficient at 08:25 pm is 85

For fishing, stronger tides are often favourable as they cause stronger currents and more motion on the sea bed. The above tidal coefficients give us an indication of how strong the tides are compared to their average. A value over 90 indicates very strong tides, known as spring tides. A low value indicates weak tides, known as neap tides. The tidal coefficient can range from 20 to 120 with a mean value of 70. A higher number usually indicates better fishing.

7 Day Fishing Weather
The weather plays an important role in fishing. Wind strenght and direction often determine where you can fish and where fish might be holding. Although high pressure is usually good for fishing, steep pressure changes often trigger feeding frenzies and are great times for fishing. Of course temperature has also a strong effect on fishing and comfort on the water. So make sure to cross check the weather forecast with the solunar fishing times to determine the best times to go fishing. The graph below shows you the 3 hourly weather progression over the next 7 days. Scroll the graph left or right to see more.

*bold times indicate best fishing times around sunrise or sunset
The aim of this website is to provide vital fishing information for planning successful fishing trips. We want to give you the best fishing almanac the internet has to offer.
Fishing is a great hobby and in order to catch fish consistently we need to consider a wide range of parameters. We need to familiarize ourselves with the habitat of the target species, look for good fishing spots, decide which tackle to use, check weather, wind and tides and make an educated guess about the best time to go fishing on a given day.
Fishingreminder is here to help you decide when to go fishing. Fish have feeding times just like us, we call them bite times. But their feeding times follow a natural rythm of sun and moon. Because sun and moon will change during the years, months and days the bite times for each day will vary.
For that reason a specific theory was developed to describe and predict bite times. It's called the Solunar Theory. Fishingreminder uses this theory to calculate a fishing calendar based on sun and moon movements, tides and weather. We have even included knowledge from the ancient Maori fishing calendar in our calculations.
According to the Solunar Theory all wildlife and not only fish follow a similar feeding rhythm. Fishingreminder can therefore also be used for hunting and bird watching to find times of increased feeding activity.
Sometimes we are very busy with work and other commitments and don’t have time or forget to check for good fishing days regularly. Only to realize a week or so after new moon that we have just missed what could have been an epic fishing session.
That’s why Fishingreminder will scan the best fishing times for your location daily and remind you per email when you should go out fishing. Cause we know that nothing is more frustrating then to miss a great fishing opportunity.
On the site you will find Major and Minor Fishing Times, Sun and Moon information, Tide information if available and Weather info’s.
There is also a Forum, which you can use to ask people for advice or help others with your knowledge. In the Photo Section you can share your photos and show us what you caught and comment on photos.  We also have an Article section and try to upload interesting articles and links to help you become an even more successful fisherman.
So have fun, explore the site and share your thoughts and catches with us.

All the best and good luck to everyone!

Sunday was a 4 star day and 2 of us caught ONE fish fishing from 10:30 to 4:30. We were really hungry when we went to bed. lOl

haha, well at least you got a fish. On a 1 star day you might have gone home empty handed.
5 months ago by John Needham
I've found it's only an excellent day if the fish are there. A spot where I've had 20+ fish in an afternoon has just dropped off to zero bites in 4 hours of fishing. Weird how it comes and goes like that.
5 months ago by Mark Totzke
haha, yeah very true. If there are no fish around then there can be no good bite times :) We can not really predict when fish are at a certain location. That would make fishing way too easy. But we can predict the times and days when they will most likely be feeding, given that they are there. Every location is different and part of the fun in fishing is finding the fish.

Why are fishing times wrong, best time shows today 4 stars,,, 7 day forecast showing 2 star day , and time at 1 hour earlier ?

Are you sure you're looking at the same dates? You might have switched the day forward by one day for the daily forecast up top.

No seasport2 is correct. IT is definitely different times and daily shows 4 stars and 7 day only 2 stars

Fished last night for 3 hours on a excellent day for fishing. Fished for 1 hour before the major period on a run out tide and in that hour caught 2 whiting and a tailor. Hardly any bites during the so called major period. I have done better fishing 1 hour each side of the eb on a average day.
4 months ago by Mark Totzke
It depends heavily on the location which minor or major times will produce best. Especially in tidal or shallow fishing spots. Some spots produce better on minor times. Some spots are not even accessible during majors or vice versa. Only lots of experience at a certain spot can answer these questions. An excellent day rating means it is New Moon, with dark nights and larger than usual currents and tides. Because of that the fishing is usually better than on poor or average days where food becomes more scarce. But there is always some luck involved. That's why fishing is so super addictive. We can increase chances but there is no silver bullet πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

My grandson got me a Penn Fathom 15nxdl2 recently from the U.S.A. It has a 33lb drag. I would like to know the maximum size of fish that can be caught on this reel. A week back, i was hooked with a 2.5 kg Trivali while trolling and retrieving it in low gear, didn't even feel if the fish was hooked. I am not sure how it will act hooked with a 20kg mackerel while trolling. Seek your opinion and advice guys. Thank you
