The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we had 11 hours and 5 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:06 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 16 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 78, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 71 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 64. The tide heights today are 0.0 ft and 0.7 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Dauphin Island which is of 2.0 ft and a minimum height of -1.0 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Dauphin Island 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 4:11 am to 6:11 am, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 10:05 am to 11:05 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 4:43 pm to 6:43 pm, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected

[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Dauphin Island 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 feet 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).
