Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 4:52 am to 6:52 am, average activity Major period (moon down)
from 11:58 am to 12:58 pm, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 5:16 pm to 7:16 pm, average activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:35 pm to 11:35 pm, low activity minor period (moonset)

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Santa Barbara 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).
