Today Tuesday, 7th of July of 2015, the sun rose in Ship Shoal Light at 6:11 am and sunset was at 8:06 pm. The setting of the moon took place at at 271º west at 12:03 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the high tide was at 7:36 am and the low tide was at 8:22 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 13 hours and 55 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:09 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 3 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 73, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 69 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 66. The tide heights today are 1.0 ft and 0.7 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 a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:52 am to 7:52 am, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 12:03 pm to 1:03 pm, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 6:13 pm to 8:13 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
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).
