Today Thursday, 20th of June of 2013, the sun will rise in Ship Shoal Light at 6:06 am and sunset will be at 8:06 pm. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 3:22 am at 251º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (111º) at 5:16 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the high tide will be at 5:49 am and the low tide will be at 4:52 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 14 hours and 0 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:06 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 6 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 77, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 83 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 87. The tide heights today are 2.0 ft and -0.3 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Ship Shoal Light which is of 2.6 ft and a minimum height of -1.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Ship Shoal Light 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:
Tide timetable for Ship Shoal Light. The times are generated in local time in Louisiana 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 Ship Shoal Light 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).
