Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 01:03 pm. Today we have 12:11 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.

  • Full Moon Full Moon
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:
    394,013 km
    27.4 %
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.

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!

Are these times best for shore fishing or deep sea fishing or both?
4 months ago by Mark Totzke
Hey perkin19, the bite times are for all types of fishing. The bite times are based on the natural rhythms of sun and moon which directly influence the natural world around us and hence all animal feeding behaviour. From plant life to small prey and then to the big predators - everything follows those natural cycles from bottom up. So the bite times could also be interpreted as times when nature as a whole is most active. Hope that helps.
4 months ago by Mark Totzke
Deep sea fishing is often more consistent than shore fishing mainly because the fish can be located with fish finders. While shore fishing depends a lot on seasonal variations, water depths, etc. Basically if the fish are there, they will most likely be on the bite during the solunar times. But with shore fishing it's often not easy to tell if the fish are there in the first place. Bite times + fish being present is the key to success :)

I took vacation this week because of the 4 star days from June 9th thru the 12th & I'm very disappointed with the results couldn't hardly get a bite, so your moon phase is garbage in my view!
3 months ago by Mark Totzke
LOL, it's actually not my moon phase. I really don't have any influence over what the moon is doing. Anyway there's more to fishing than to solely rely on bite times. It will help a lot to fish at the right time but it's no guarantee that the fish will be there, that the weather plays along, etc. In other words you still gotta know what you're doing. Fishing is not quite that simple.

Another tool in the toolbox.
3 months ago by Mark Totzke
? that's right.. Some people seem to think they can catch fish in a bathtub, if they fish at the right time ? But as you say, a fishing calendar is another tool and not the ultimate answer to all fishing ?
3 months ago by johnny weaver
It won't be in my toolbox ever again, I fished all day long 10 hours a day, you want to try to defend yourselves, read what it says its about planning your next fishing trip, don't want miss it, I know what I'm doing!!!
3 months ago by Mark Totzke
johnny weaver: I hear what you say. You feel frustrated that the bite times did not produce any fish for you. Well nobody is forcing you to use fishing times. You can always plan your fishing trips randomly. The bite times are not something we made up. The Solunar Theory is a well known theory for predicting feeding behaviour. I know many spots where I could fish 24/7 without catching a fish, no matter what the bite times say. If you fish 10 hours a day without any bites then I would say it's probably time to move to a different fishing spot.
3 months ago by Tad Motyl
Some days for no apparent reason the fish just disappear or worse they are still there but don't want to feed. No matter what the experts say.
3 months ago by Mark Totzke
Imagine fishing was that simple and fish were always in the same spot and always on the bite... There'd probably be no fish left by now. Luckily it's not that easy to catch fish. It's called fishing and not catching. It's a challenge and so it should be. Otherwise there'd be no fun in fishing. Even pros can't catch fish anytime and everywhere.
3 months ago by Mark Totzke
We have many tools in our arsenal: advanced fish finders, all types of lures and baits, tons of tackle options, boats, kayaks, paddle boards, drones, polarised glasses, fishing calendars, detailed weather forecasts, etc - yet none of them can guarantee a catch. That's why fishing is so addictive and rewarding.
3 months ago by John Needham
I must say as someone new to fishing a lot of the enjoyment is about being in the outdoors. Seeing places you generally wouldn't and then the added buzz of trying to tempt some cunning creature to bite on something it shouldn't. It took me 2 months of fishing to catch my first fish but by gum it was worth it for that feeling.

When we did a lot of fishing on charter boats we would only go when fish reminder forecasted an all star day .7 trips in a row catching our limit feeding the whanau , you still need to have good gear and a skill set, those same trips seen other people cant catch shit or sticking with wrong tackle set up .

haha, well at least you got a fish. On a 1 star day you might have gone home empty handed.
1 month 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.
1 month 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 ?
2 weeks ago by Mark Totzke
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.
2 weeks ago by chris collins
No seasport2 is correct. IT is definitely different times and daily shows 4 stars and 7 day only 2 stars

hmm, interesting. It must be only on certain locations then as it's not doing that on my end. I'll check it out, might have overlooked something in the last update.

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.
1 week 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 😂😁
