The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we had 13 hours and 33 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:17 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 31 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 85, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 86 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 87. The tide heights today are 0.0 ft, 5.2 ft, 0.0 ft and 5.9 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Charleston which is of 7.2 ft and a minimum height of -1.6 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Charleston tells us that today is an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 12:34 am to 2:34 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 6:18 am to 7:18 am, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 1:02 pm to 3:02 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 7:47 pm to 8:47 pm, very high activity minor period (moonrise). 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 Charleston. The times are generated in local time in South 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 Charleston 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).
