Today Wednesday, 1st of October of 2014, the sun will rise in Shimoda at 5:39 h and sunset will be at 17:29 h. The moon will rise in the southeast (113º) at 11:55 h and will set in the southwest (248º) at 22:32 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 3:25 h and the next low tide at 15:40 h. The first high tide will be at 10:45 h and the next high tide at 20:55 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we will have 11 hours and 50 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 11:34 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 37 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 49, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 48 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 50. The tide heights today are 0.5 m, 1.4 m, 1.1 m and 1.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Shimoda which is of 1.7 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Shimoda tells us that today is a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 4:45 h to 6:45 h, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:55 h to 12:55 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 17:13 h to 19:13 h, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 22:32 h to 23:32 h, high activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Shimoda. The times are generated in local time in Shizuoka. 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 Shimoda 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).
