Today Saturday, 7th of December of 2013, the sun rose in Wilmington at 7:05 am and sunset will be at 5:02 pm. The moon rose in the southeast (102º) at 10:58 am and will set in the west (260º) at 10:31 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we have 9 hours and 57 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:04 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 33 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 76, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 70 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 66. The tide heights today are 4.3 ft, -0.3 ft, 4.9 ft and -0.3 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Wilmington which is of 5.6 ft and a minimum height of -0.7 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Wilmington 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 4:11 am to 6:11 am, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 10:58 am to 11:58 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 4:44 pm to 6:44 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 10:31 pm to 11:31 pm, average activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Wilmington. 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 Wilmington 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).
