We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Opunake Bay which is of 3.6 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Opunake Bay 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 1:07 am to 2:07 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 6:51 am to 8:51 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 12:35 pm to 1:35 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 7:09 pm to 9:09 pm, 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
Tide timetable for Opunake Bay. The times are generated in local time in Taranaki and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. 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 Opunake Bay 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).
