We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Tides4fishing allows you to make tide predictions for Southampton years in advance. Please note that the data are approximations only valid for fishing and so IS NOT VALID FOR NAVIGATION.
Today Saturday, 28th of November of 2015, the sun rose in Southampton at 7:42 h and sunset was at 16:07 h. The moon set at 9:47 h at 300º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (61º) at 19:01 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 5:25 h and the next low tide at 17:50 h. The only high tide of the day was at 11:45 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 8 hours and 25 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 11:54 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 46 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 85, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 79 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 74. The tide heights today are 0.7 m, 4.7 m and 0.6 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Southampton which is of 5.0 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Southampton tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 1:54 h to 3:54 h, high activity Major period (moon up)
from 9:47 h to 10:47 h, average activity minor period (moonset)
from 14:24 h to 16:24 h, high activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 19:01 h to 20:01 h, average activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Southampton. The times are generated in local time in England 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 Southampton 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).
