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.

Best Fishing Spots in the greater East Chicago area

Beaches and Bays are ideal places for land-based fishing. If the beach is shallow and the water is clear then twilight times are usually the best times, especially when they coincide with a major or minor fishing time. Often the points on either side of a beach are the best spots. Or if the beach is large then look for irregularities in the breaking waves, indicating sandbanks and holes. We found 8 beaches and bays in this area.

Munson Beach - 10km , Calumet Park Beach - 11km , Rainbow Park Beach - 16km , Marquette Park Beach - 16km , Sixty-seventh Street Beach - 18km , Jackson Park Beach - 19km , Fiftyninth Street Beach - 20km , Fifty-Seventh Street Beach - 20km

Harbours and Marinas can often times be productive fishing spots for land based fishing as their sheltered environment attracts a wide variety of bait fish. Similar to river mouths, harbour entrances are also great places to fish as lots of fish will move in and out with the rising and falling tides. There are 11 main harbours in this area.

The Forks - 2km, Buffington Harbor - 3km, Indiana Harbor - 4km, Turning Basin Number 3 - 9km, Turning Basin Number 5 - 10km, Rock Island Slip (historical) - 11km, Calumet Harbor - 12km, Howard Slip - 12km, Turning Basin Number 1 - 12km, North Slip - 13km, Fiftyninth Street Marina - 20km
