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 drops to 69 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 63. The tide heights today are -0.3 ft, 4.9 ft and -0.7 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Southport which is of 5.9 ft and a minimum height of -0.7 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Southport 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 4:35 am to 6:35 am, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 10:36 am to 11:36 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 5:07 pm to 7:07 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
from 11:39 pm to 12:39 am, average activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Southport. 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.

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