Thanks for the feedback, but if it uses Lunar predictions like the solunar table. then its pretty useless. I have a casio watch which does that and i noticed the peak fishing days are the same days of the lunar month like spring and neap with the times being the same from month to month, and you also get no fish whenit says peak fishing. Also you can't always go fishing when its peak time. So you fish when you can ...

never fish on the day of the full moon unless you want to spoon for kob at night then it works.

Cheers TC


The Kob and full moon really works, last time we went after kob in a full moon we got 8 of these fellows in around one hour (very early in the morning)



I really got tired that morning, as you can see I'm resting after the fight :-)

With mine, I had to put in the lunatidal intervel, which is another story.


Lunartidal intervals,now where have I heard that before, lol, borders on quantum physics hey mag-man,especially the settings.Basically what it means in its most simplistic form is that it co-ordinates the time that the moon rises in a specific location with the time that the tide is high in that specific region.  EG.  Spring tides occur on the new moon and full moon every two weeks,When it is spring tide,invariably on the day of the full or new moon,the low tide would almost always be between 09h00 and 10h00 in the morning and the spring-high between 15h00 and 16h00 in the afternoon (USEFULL INFO IF YOU CAN SEE THE MOON,OR REMEMBER WHAT IT LOOKED LIKED THE NIGHT BEFORE ,AND DONT HAVE A TIDE CHART HANDY)

Now lets say just for arguments sake that 5 days after new moon or full moon of this month,the merry month of May,according to the tide charts(which sometimes differ from DSTV weather) It will be the 10th of May,as the new moon was on the 5th of may, if, and the if is a guesstimate ,the moon rose at 19h30 on the tenth and the tide is high at the same time,remember not when it gets dark ,but when the moon rises and the tide is virtually full ,that would then be the lunartidal interval for that location .

What one does with the info is entirely a whole new matter,but there are some die-hards that religiously adheres to these conditions,why? dunno,does it sound like a good time to go fishing,sure it does ,(any time is a good time to go fishing, lol)the tide is full or pushing,and the added benefit of a touch of moonlight may just make spoons or lures just a bit more visible,being high-tide, it may also make fish come over drops that would earlier be too shallow for their liking.So although anglers that fish these patterns may catch more fish than at other times,why, it may be because they have more bait in the water at this occurence than at other times,or is there some mysterious code that needs perusal.

There are just too many permutations to predict when fish will bite with any degree of great success,in advance that is,by that I mean,barometric pressures may play a role(a huge one at that)these have been tested scientifically,oxygen levels in the water(scientifically proven) water temperature(scientifically proven)The prevailing wind i.e a north Easter on the Kzn coast-Why do local knowledge determine that certain species will be more prolific after 2 days of this wind , is it because the wind blew,the chop in the water(oxygen levels) the temperature of the water(because of upwelling)the rise in the barometric pressure or is it a combination of all of the above.

The same goes for the opposite breeze the (sometimes dreaded South-Wester) flatter sea ,falling barometer,warmer water,etc etc etc,

My advice would be for an angler to avail himself of the different species to be caught in the different weather/wind conditions ,(because they will differ,with a few exceptions) and to then taking the previous day's weather into account ,fish hard for those species that have been known to be caught more prolific in the specific weather/wind conditions .You must have a plan 'B' BECAUSE INVARIABLY THE WEATHER WILL NOT ALWAYS WORK IN YOUR FAVOUR WHILST FISHING.

Considering all of the above ,bear in mind that there are angler out there just waiting for the full moon, others for the new moon ,more ,waiting for neap-tides,and some more waiting for a cold front to come through ,just so they can fish the two hours before it happens,and generally you will find most guys fishing on the pushing tide,maybe all of this was written into the script of a bigger plan,just so that we dont all trample each other to death on the beaches and rocky points along our beautifull coastline. 

I have said it before ,yet it is again applicable,the two best times to fish, is "when it is raining ,and when it is not"::S

Just my two Old Mutual shares

Very good points made Kiterunner. The only way to really predict favourable fishing times would be to keep an accurate record of catches made with all relevant data (time,lunar phase,barometric pressure,air and water temp,wind direction and speed etc) and if Iwasn't so lazy I would probably have cracked it by now. But since I haven't logged this data I can only hope someone else has,and is willing to share, or just keep guessing when the fish are biting,lol.

I dont see your location in your profile,but from your fishing spots I would guess that you are a Sharks supporter,it is easier for guys living at the coast to gain this knowledge,than for example inland-anglers.But one has the advantage of a reputable tackle-shop owner to act as a guide for you,so to speak. One must never underestimate the power of local knowledge, gained freely from most reputable tackle stockists,if one was in any doubt,give your local a call,If your relationship is up to scratch with your 'PRO" then he will tell you where ,and for what species he would be fishing had he not been trapped behind the counter.

I still maintain that way too litle credit is given to the tackle-dealers with real knowledge,they are worth more than most magazine's "best fishing day predictions'' Everyone should try it, after all,a passion for what it is that you are doing ,was the reason why he started or bought his business in the first place. 

Ok,tackle-shop-owners p.m me for my free gift-vouchers now. ::S

I have had one for a couple of years now,not exactly like the one in the ad,but like the one on the guys wrist in the ad(older model).It has distinct advantages,it is very accurate as a barometer,a compass,and temp gauge,altimeter and in can even tell the time.It also stores barometer patterns for a certain time,for example if you knew you caught a few kobbies at 9h00 clock at night you can check the following day or later that evening ,if there was any change in barometer at that time,,as long as the watch was in the same location(altitude) as you,say in your holiday cottage a few kilometers away.

It shows a falling barometer in a jiffy,which can translate to better catches.My experience would have it that an hour or two before,and after the drop, would be very good for various species .

It is robust ,watertight to a degree,yet it is not something you would want to wear to work,unless your'e a snowboarding instructor.The newer one does look a tad slimmer though.

Cheers

I  dont have a lot of "remote-control-time" nowadays between my 13yr old son and the missus,but I can remember a time when even the ESA guys were seen wearing similar brand watches(probably get something else from the sponsors nowadays),there must be a reason for this surely.

I know that Lance Grobler from Anglers world in Shelley Beach wears a watch with a barometric function(the writer of many a fine article in the angling magazines,a gentleman of note ,and somebody with a vast VAST knowledge of angling in various disciplines,KZN colours for rock and surf and BASS if I am correct.That may mean nothing to some people,but surely there is a reason.If you know there is front coming through and you wish to fish the time just before it (when fish are believed to bite more sporadically in certain places(most-,,,debatable) ,then you will have an edge by seeing the drop in pressure,prior to its actual arrival,right on your arm,not on some dodgy barometer bought from an interior design shop.

Do I think SUUNTO  is the right one ,yes,for me,maybe not for the next guy,but it has yielded results for me,especially when used in combination with local knowledge (species for weather pattern arriving etc).Also I can honestly say I have had over 5 years of trouble free operation(probably nearer 7 yrs).

They cost slightly more than a decent gents watch,but they are interesting enough to make up for the money spent,I recommend you try a dealer and physically inspect one before buying,.It becomes a bit like quality bait,if you spend so much on getting there and taking the cost of your tackle and travel ,then surely you want every advantage you can get to make the time fishing worthwhile. 

Hope it helps

ja well....if we can get back to the point, **************
i recon its better to fish the newer moon, as some of the ou's have said a few days before and a few days after...makes sense anyway as the water becomes higher and there be more "water"to swim in, so theres more to look at and feed from?!? Yes full moon is excellent for Kob.I also fish the waining moon.
Fact is we sommer fish in the donnerweer as well.

:)

Barometric Pressure

by Raymond de Bruyn (Photos by Brenna Bales-Smith and Dean Pretorius)


This is an exceptionally “scientific approach” in the whole angling arena. Many enquiries have been mailed to us regarding this subject and exactly how it affects our love, angling. Let’s take a look at the intricacies of it and work from there.

To help us understand the words ‘barometric pressure’ lets turn to the dictionary definition: Barometric pressure - a noun describing atmospheric pressure, indicated to us by a barometer.

Now that seems fairly straight forward and simple to understand but if we dig a little deeper we will see there is a little more to it as far as angling is concerned. The scientific definition of the words Barometric pressure states - it is a measure of the weight of the atmosphere above a surface averaging approximately 29, 2 inches of mercury/1013 millibars (mb) at mean sea level, which corresponds to 14, 7 pounds per square inch.

Now that is a little more complex but still, with the help of an instrument simple enough to understand its not all that complicated. A barometer is an instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. Basically, in general terms, changes in barometric pressure indicate weather changes, these changes can be good or bad, and this can all be defined by what the barometer is doing. For example is it dropping or rising?

Bad weather usually occurs when the barometer is falling where as good weather on the other hand can usually be predicted by a rising barometer. Through this simple method one has the advantage of being able to predict the weather.

Anglers have their own ideas, opinions and theories about the marine environment that don’t necessarily always stand up to scientific analysis. We generally believe that as pressure changes so the effects are felt by the fish, causing them to feel uncomfortable or resulting in fish on the bite. According to scientists atmospheric pressure has no significant effect on fish feeding habits but, it does have an effect on the depth or structure where a fish would prefer feeding during high and low pressures. According to scientists the weather conditions indicated by a fluctuating barometer have more effect on feeding patterns than the air pressure itself. Usually a high barometer means clear weather and a rising barometer is the result of clearing or improving weather. A stable barometer would suggest fair weather conditions where as a slightly low level barometer indicates cloudy weather and a lower reading indicating rain and storms.

 Another way of looking at the changing weather we experience with changes in the air pressure we could look at the winds which are known to affect a fish’s behavioral patterns. One theory is that high pressure will result in clear skies and little wind. A rising barometer indicates, improving weather with the usual light south-westerly or south-easterly. Stable pressure generally shows fair weather with a light north-easterly. A falling barometer is the result of bad weather approaching, usually with strong north-easterly winds, a slightly low barometer means that a south-west is coming and low pressure indicates rain and storms along with gusting south-westers.

Winds play a huge role in the effects of fish feeding patterns and therefore also on the species we can expect to catch.

Affects of winds on marine conditions.



The theory is that wind from the left i.e. a north easterly, will make things more productive whereas with the wind in your face, a south easterly, the fish don’t tend to eat. This is commonly known as the poison wind. Wind from the right, namely a south westerly often results in good fishing on the first day of south west but then deteriorating as it continues to blow.

Let’s put some facts to theses theories to prove why these different winds affect angling.
One straight fact is that oxygen content in water plays the most important role in the fish behavior. Oxygen can be gained or lost depending on what conditions regarding wind and air pressure are present. Generally high pressure forces more oxygen into the water and low pressure removes oxygen from the water. Wind also plays a role in the amount of oxygen available in the water, with the north-easter generally making the swell shorter causing the sea to become choppy thus infusing more oxygen into the water. The southwest on the other hand, makes the swells longer creating a less choppy sea and thus resulting in less oxygen being infused into the ocean. With that being said there is one more element to throw into the equation. The water temperature also has its role to play… Colder water, usually blown inshore by a north easterly wind, has higher oxygen content than warmer water, caused by south westerly winds.
 
What causes a fish feeding frenzy?

Fish notice the decline in the oxygen content of the water. This oxygen starts depleting because of the air pressure and the sea conditions present. As the pressure climbs so the oxygen levels increase making the fish more active and going about their normal behavior. Once the air pressure stabilizes, the oxygen levels reach their highest levels. This climb in the barometer usually coincides with a south westerly wind. Once the weather stabilizes, the north easterly begins to blow filling the water with even more oxygen leaving the fish happy and comfortable. This is called the ‘lag’ period. The north easterly wind means a low pressure system is moving up the coastline and the pressure starts dropping as this low pressure comes closer. As the pressure drops so the oxygen levels also begin to deplete causing the “smash” as fish begin to feel the depletion in oxygen causing them to panic almost and thus resulting in the fish eating as much as possible before the bad weather conditions arrive.

Now you can see the complexity of all these factors really do keep us guessing on where what when and how the fish are going to be feeding. In short, using the above information we can conclude that, the barometer does play a significant role in indicating what the fish feeding patterns may be, taking many more aspects into consideration than just the air pressure. In fact we can actually say that generally, a high barometer reading means that the fish are content and will feed at leisure not really going out of their way to actively pursue food and a dropping barometer will indicate an out come, resulting in the conditions sending the fish into a feeding frenzy because due to the conditions of the elements we have discussed, combined with a low pressure the fish will sense the possibilities of bad weather approaching, thus forcing them to eat. A low barometer will show that the conditions present will slow down their feeding and finally a rising barometer will tell us of good conditions approaching, slowly making the fish more active and less panicked, thus returning them to their normal feeding patterns.

In short there are many other factors involved in finding fish and their feeding spots. As a good friend of mine once said, fish bite best when your bait is in the water. If you are not fishing then you can’t be getting any bites! There is only one thing that will suffice other then than not working and catching fish and that is being on the beach early in the morning when the sun is just rising, the fish are jumping and the birds are starting to wake up. I reckon God made early mornings especially to enjoy everything about being near the water, not necessarily just what’s in the water.

KATONKEL....Spot on.

I personally believe in that moment before the South Wester. Feeding frenzy generally. Also however during and after it is mostly dead for fishing. This is now offshore fishing I'm referring to. Your specific discipline is where the difference comes in. Rock and Surf full moon is good. Offshore full moon is not. Why? Simply because off shore is a day sport and fish feed actively at night during a full moon. Your only hopes then is early morning 5:30 to 09:00am and very late before dusk. This is my experience. Those times puts you in the zone for the ones still feeding from the night before or the early starters for the next evening.

Another factor I really believe in and has been proven over and over is rain. In offshore I ride towards the rain. If the rain is over your fishing spots it generally turns wild in no time.

Look out for these patterns. They do work. Just be carefull of being caught out there with a SW buster. It can be fatal.

This is a great site http://www.satides.co.za/ It also gives you the tides for the year ahead especially for planning those fishing trips in advance. The site has it all, tide height, moon rise & moon set, the works... You can also choose the general area you want the tide for, it also takes the different tide times all over South Africa into account.
