fishing box Planning a fishing expedition

There are still many fishermen convinced that fish feed during the first two hours of a high tide and also during the last two hours of a low tide

All those who plan their fishing expeditions based only on the state of the tides are wasting one of the most useful tools available to us sport fishermen: the solunar charts.

The tides are not a determining factor in fish activity, but rather have a catalysing effect, as the tide controls the depth of water above all in those places where fish tend to eat. For those cases where we fish close to the mouths of rivers and canals, the tide has greater influence, as it is in charge of controlling the flow of fish.

Both tides and solunar periods are provoked by the attraction of the sun and the moon and as a result bear a certain relation. However, for different days we will see great differences in the start of the solunar periods in relation to high tide and low tide.

Therefore we cannot know the moment at which the fish are most active (solunar periods) by simply looking at the tide tables, but rather we must make use of both (tides and solunar charts) in order to plan our fishing expedition.
