| from 0:08 h to 2:08 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 6:28 h to 7:28 h, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:36 h to 14:36 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Bakana are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
