*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!

Hi there. Just checking how the fishing is predicted on certain days and each day states ‘excellent ‘ but does not have the correct number of stars to represent excellent. Just thought I would let you know, if you don’t know already. Hope this makes sense. Regards

Why are there always more POOR predictions, than EXCELLENT? Just curious?
10 months ago by Mark Totzke
Hey viettom, there are only a few days each month when the solunar conditions are perfect (sun and moon align). This usually happens during new moon and full moon. You can still catch fish on poor or average days. But during the few excellent days each month your chances are best.

9 months ago by Red Rider
On Monday June 9, you indicate fishing conditions will be "poor" while the In Fisherman web site says fishing conditions will be "excellent" for the same zip code. Can anyone tell me why there is such a great disparity in predictions?
9 months ago by Mark Totzke
Hi Red Rider, there a quite a few sites out there that don't follow the solunar times properly or just plainly have the wrong calculations. Sometimes they use wrong timezones or get their data from other third party providers that got wrong times of their own. Here at Fishingreminder I've been calculating fishing times for over 10 years now and did a lot of research into the Solunar Theory and of course I'm also an avid fisherman myself. I can't tell you why other sites might show you different times or day ratings - but I can assure you that my calculations follow the Solunar Theory very closely und undergo a lot of testing while taking into account the correct timezones, latitude, longitude, etc of your selected location. Hope that helps - tight lines 🎣🎣

Wonder why the leader is always stronger. If leader is weaker, while necessary to break a snagged line, lesser line is lost. If the leader is weaker, only the leader is lost.

I fish at the top end of a Lake & tides are read from the bottom of the Lake. The Tide lag at the top end is (according to my very rough estimate based on SmartPhone Tide information & watermark on a wharf pylon) 2.5 hours. So it becomes a small headache working out Tides & best fishing times in my area. I developed an Excel Spreadsheet using available Tide information, that allows for Tide Time Variance & calculates the best Fishing start times before & after Tide changes. I use it the first time today. We caught 4 fish. 4 times more than the last time we went fishing..

Does Solunar Theory affect in-land dam fishing? I am asking specifically in reference to Botswana in Southern Africa, which is a landlocked country?? I ask because even on the best-predicted day, I have bumbed out......only to have a bonanza on a supposed POOR day?? Last week, September 1, was supposed to be 4/4 for Gaborone Dam but, albeit the foregoing....zip bites, zip ripples, zip fish!!? Please advise .....anyone??

Gentlemen I am in need of some assistance. I am in Northern Ontario and I live on a lake that provides plenty of Pike and Smallmouth Bass fishing all summer long. As soon as the leaves drop from the trees in the fall (mid - late October) the fishing falls off the map. I appreciate that with the colder water the fish may require less food but I am beginning to wonder if, like turtles and other amphibious creatures, they stop feeding and go into a state similar to hibernation? I was hoping that with the water temperature going down some of the bigger Pike might find their way up, out of those deep holes the settle in during the warmer months. Can you give me any advise or links that might help me find and hook the fall fish?
