Tide tables and solunar tables for sport fishers in Cape Fear. Find out the forecast for high tides and low tides before setting out to fish, and other fishing-related data such as the lunar phase, tidal coefficient, sun and moon rising and setting times, hours of maximum fish activity, weather conditions in Cape Fear ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Sunday, 29th of November of 2015, the sun will rise in Cape Fear at 6:58 am and sunset will be at 5:02 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 10:08 am at 290º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (71º) at 9:00 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide will be at 3:11 am and the next low tide at 4:11 pm. The first high tide will be at 9:37 am and the next high tide at 10:05 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we will have 10 hours and 4 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:00 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 8 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 74, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 68 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 63. The tide heights today are 0.0 ft, 5.6 ft, 0.0 ft and 4.3 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Cape Fear which is of 6.9 ft and a minimum height of -1.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Cape Fear tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 3:05 am to 5:05 am, average activity Major period (moon up)
from 10:08 am to 11:08 am, low activity minor period (moonset)
from 3:34 pm to 5:34 pm, average 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 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm, low activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Cape Fear. The times are generated in local time in North Carolina 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 Cape Fear 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).
