Sun and Moon
The sun will be at it's highest point at 12:55 pm. Today we have 14:39 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.

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.

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 Waning Crescent at 7% lumination. According to the Solunar Theory, today is a average day for fishing, but you need to cross check this with the current weather forecast for a final decision. The next best fishing time ( ) starts in 2 hours and 2 minutes. The gray time indicator displays the current local time.

Tide Coefficient at 06:55 am is 107
Tide Coefficient at 07:18 pm is 138

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.

Best Fishing Spots in the greater Ocean City 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 18 beaches and bays in this area.

Carnival Bayou - 1km , Venetian Bayou - 2km , Great Egg Harbor Bay - 3km , Peck Bay - 4km , Peck Beach - 5km , Steelman Bay - 5km , Scull Bay - 7km , Bayshore Lagoon - 9km , Shelter Island Bay - 10km , Strathmere Bay - 11km , Lakes Bay - 12km , Whale Beach - 12km , Little Bay - 15km , Ludlam Bay - 15km , Absecon Bay - 17km , Ludlam Beach - 18km , Mankiller Bay - 18km , Peter 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 8 main harbours in this area.

Orient Canal - 8km, Sunset Canal - 8km, Chelsea Harbor - 13km, Municipal Yacht Basin - 13km, Delta Basin - 17km, Gardners Basin - 17km, Snug Harbor - 17km, State Marina - 17km
