At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 111 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 113. The tide heights today are 2.2 m, 1.0 m, 2.0 m and 0.5 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cape Don which is of 2.6 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cape Don tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:58 am to 6:58 am, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:04 pm to 2:04 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 6:11 pm to 7:11 pm, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
Tide timetable for Cape Don. The times are generated in local time in Northern Territory. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Cape Don 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).
