Fishing How to – Understanding Tidal Coefficient, Barometric Pressure & Solunar!

Fishing How to – Understanding Tidal Coefficient, Barometric Pressure & Solunar!

Here is a great fishing how to video that gives insight on tidal coefficient, barometric pressure & solunar phases. Knowledge is power and the more that you know about these things the better you can plan your fishing excursions. I personally utilize the tool or webpage:

This is a great FREE website that will allow you to do your reconnaissance for planning your next fishing trip. Here is a brief synopsis of what I cover in the video:

I discuss tidal coefficients, which tell us the amplitude of the tide. (Difference in high tides and low). It also helps gauge how fast the water will be coming in or going out. Even though coefficients are the same for the entire planet, the amplitude is quite different depending on what region of the world you are in.

I also discuss barometric pressure and how the rising and falling effect the fishing. Barometric pressure is defined as the weight or mass of an entire air column on a unit if surface area at sea level. Fish sense pressure changes through their air bladder. The fish that have smaller air bladders such as wahoo, dolphins and kings for example aren’t effected as much as the species with larger air bladders: trout, redfish, tarpon etc… Reason being is because fish that have smaller air bladders have a body density that’s closer to the surrounding water; therefore they can’t sense the change as much. Fish with larger bladders can sense rapid drops in pressure and they can feel it too. When their bladder expands fish become uncomfortable and may move to deeper water, the last thing on their mind is eating at this point.

Lastly I discuss the solunar moon phases and their importance when fishing. Using moon tables you can find when the moon is directly underfoot or overhead. The peak feeding times tend to correspond around new and full moons, you also notice healthier tides. Understanding Major and minor moon phases can really increase your odds of catching more fish.

    You just gave me one of the most important tools I can use to go fishing. Thank you…..

  2. Salvador Cisneros on January 11, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Sounds good my brotha… honestly brother I want to be as good as you.. I want to learn all your tips and tricks and also learn how to read the waters and what lures and soft baits to use so I can become a great angler I’ve tried to study my waters and I can’t seem to get it right thanks and God Bless

  3. Aaron Davis on January 11, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    I fish for the fun of it. If I really have to eat some fish, it’s available at the grocery store or restaurant. Don’t stress over catching

  4. KwandoRay on January 11, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    Capt. Taylor, thanks for all the knowledge, I’m surely going to use it! Be well, Ray

  5. plant city chuck on January 11, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    I have good luck on a n wind.not so much on the east.but i do know this.i catch lots of fish when my line is in the will not catch fish if it isnt.this always applies.

  6. Rick Fine on January 11, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    Joshua, thank you for this; youre a good teacher!…….I tried to find the chart that you put up on your video…..Tides for and typed in my zipcode, it did not come up as you showed, if you would please tell me again.

    thank you, Rick

  7. EFCANCER Tobylove on January 11, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    Man no wonder jeee, I never knew such thing THANKYOU ! that explain, you have change my way of fishing 🎣 🤔😲

  8. Big O! on January 11, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    I learned a lot from this. It sounded well thought out and the explanations were easy for me to follow. I’ll check that site. Thanks this helped this "Tide Dummy"! The pressure explanation was awesome bro, I never knew that.

  9. z z on January 11, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    My question – when there is a low tide coefficient (when the difference between high and low tide is small with less currents) is it better to fish rivers/river mouths or in the deep pockets of ocean such as jetties?I suspect rivers are good then because there is less mud kicked up but I only speculate.Any experienced thoughts?

  10. Zac Mercer on January 11, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    Great info!

  11. Bill Begenau on January 11, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    Question…. I fish the south Skyway pier and always do better in the mornings on an out going tide. Any idea why this is.

  12. Cem HOŞGÖR & Deniz Balıkçılığı on January 11, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    Beatiful training video👏

  13. ineedmondayoff on January 11, 2020 at 8:52 pm

    I have to disagree about the barometric pressure idea. Here is an article explaining why…

  14. steve norman on January 11, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Great video josh, thanks for sharing

  15. Joe Anthony on January 11, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    Capt. T, bro I always look up this app before going fishing. Down here in the Galveston area, this app really helps, especially at the jetties and the peninsula areas, such as clearlake and Seabrook area ( where I usually fish). Your absolutely right, the app works well. Thanks for the info, Tight lines never stop! Can’t wait for the next vid from you, my friend!

  16. Guero Kool Arrow on January 11, 2020 at 8:55 pm

    great video! been using that website for years and hasn’t let me down to this day. another good tool that i use is the app windfinder

  17. Jiang Tao on January 11, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    very professional, I like it.

  18. ver asuncion on January 11, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Awesome Video…..Now I am beginning to understand Tides, Moon Phase, Pressure, etc….Tnx.

  19. Richard Medeiros on January 11, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    plenty of apps you have to pay a monthly fee to see the same things online for free. not wasting my money on those anymore lol. thanks for the advice

  20. Dustin Tatum on January 11, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    yall have stickers I wanna get sum to cover my yeti 45 my friends thought it would be funny to paint it and I need to cover it😂

  21. Michael Hamm on January 11, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    Great video and explanation!

  22. The Traveling Fisherman on January 11, 2020 at 9:02 pm

    What a great site!! Another great informative video buddy! Thanks again for the info!

  23. Salvador Cisneros on January 11, 2020 at 9:03 pm

    What is the best time to go stripe bass fishing and what’s the best lures or bait to use what works best for you thanks josh

  24. Salvador Cisneros on January 11, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    Down north as I live here in Sacramento California maybe some day you can come down so we can fish the American river my brotha and maybe I can learn from you how to be a better angler

  25. Chris House on January 11, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    Thank you !! That website is liiiit

  26. Autoo Zero on January 11, 2020 at 9:07 pm


  27. T L on January 11, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    I know this is an older one but I had to comment. Great video!

    I use the exact same website…many times daily actually.

    I focus primarily on pressure, tides, and lunar transit/opposing lunar transit.
    (I don’t focus on moon phases so much until we approach full moon).

    If you can fish a situation with all of these occurring at the same time – rising pressure, the two hour window of peak high tide, lunar or opposing lunar transit, and low light conditions…. grab your gear because it’s on!!

    If you can catch all that on the day of the month with the full moon, then call in sick to work because it’s going to be epic!!

    I hope your others viewers are doing the same because it certainly makes a difference MOST of the time.

  28. Longobardi Lounge on January 11, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    I use the same site! Even if I don’t get the fish I like everytime,but, this is pretty much 85pct to 100pct accurate on my use of this site before I go fishing

  29. Red Lady Fish on January 11, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Excellent video , I have been waiting for someone to explain this sciency topic of solunar and barometric pressure and how it affects fish, very well explained.👍👍👍

  30. Alvin Wolfe on January 11, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Going to check this site out
    Always fish the New & Full moon cycles….Thanks Joshua

  31. C.P Bagley on January 11, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Thanks man free and reliable are a plus. Unfortunately with my schedule picking the best day sometimes isn’t in the plan

  32. tomas jr villanueva on January 11, 2020 at 9:16 pm

    Thank Josh, very educational and very informative. I will study this and try it.

  33. Gary Simmons on January 11, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Great video.

  34. Jose Lucena on January 11, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Hey Josh I do like the information keep up the vids.

  35. zcastedo on January 11, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    Thanks for sharing this awesome resource, man! I’m new to fishing and I’m interested in learning as much about the basic strategies of when/where to fish, so I’ll definitely be checking out this site.

  36. Johnny Que on January 11, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    probably the best explanation I’ve come across to date! Thanks for the info!

  37. Joe Brallier Fishing on January 11, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    thank you for explaining this. bring raised in Kansas the tires is foreign to me

  38. john hall on January 11, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Great video. Ive been trying to understand flood ebb and slack current. But im getting confused wben i see slack water is sometime in between the high or low tide. How can slack current be before high or low.
    Thanks for great video

  39. Jim Underhill on January 11, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Thanks for the info on this website. Very useful. Do you fish the Big Bend area around Shell Point?

  40. Brian Thomas on January 11, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Great explanation of this website. I use this site all the time down here on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Like you said, there are days that say it will be crappy for fishing, but it ended up being a great day. However, more often than not, it does help with planning out more productive days. Heck, it’s a free tool, why not use it.

  41. PJorge Rod on January 11, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Hello, first thanks for sharing. I begin this year to surfcasting and i am very focus in reading beach structure. Can you advise any book ou source of information to go deeply in this subject? Thanks in advance. Paul

  42. Derek Miguel on January 11, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Great info, awesome video keep up the good work.

  43. Ryan Kiernan on January 11, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Great explanation. When is the next livestream gonna happen?

  44. Hustle Union on January 11, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    best site for tides that I’ve found

  45. Josh Streeter on January 11, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Been using TidesforFishing for almost a year now. Tonight I learned more from this video than I have in that last year. I had the data, but didn’t know how it all worked together. Big thanks!

    BTW, the snook bite was insane under the bridges in S. St Pete tonight. Following the chart, I’m heading back out shortly!

  46. Cityrat44 HC on January 11, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Hey Josh just subscribed, great video and very informative thanks!

  47. Blake Camacho on January 11, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Do you have makeup on ?

  48. Call Sign KillerB2u on January 11, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    At my age, gas and lack of bladder pressure are par for the course 🎣

  49. Kai Chen on January 11, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    nice information. definitely learned a lot. I will say that this video is 70% of the success. the other 30% depends on you to learn your fishing spots. Different areas might have different feeding times just because of its geographical composition. I wish you would also touch on the moon phase how it affects the tide strength.. thanks a lot bud

  50. KMK 517 on January 11, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    This might sound dumb, Is this info page your talking about just for salt water? with the tide stuff & other it seems like its geared for salt water fishing. I fish fresh water.
