In-Fisherman's Digital Solunar Calendar

In-Fisherman's Digital Solunar Calendar

Some anglers on the Finesse News Network said that they were a tad perplexed when they saw that the solunar calendar published in In-Fisherman magazine had different best fishing times than the best fishing times listed on the solunar calendar published on In-Fisherman's website.

For instance, if anglers from Lawrence, Kansas, consult the best fishing times for Dec. 31, 2013, which are printed on page 63 of the Winter 2013/2014 issue of In-Fisherman, they will see that the best hours will occur from 8:51 a.m. to 10:51 a.m. and 9:23 p.m. to 11:23 p.m. And if these same anglers examine In-Fisherman's website's solunar calendar for Dec. 3 1, 2013, they will notice that the best fishing times occur from 9:11 a.m. to 11:11 a.m. and 9:42 p.m. to 11:42 p.m. In addition to posting the two best fishing times of the day, the online calendar also provides anglers with a minor period or the second-best fishing time of the day; for example, the minor period for Dec. 31, 2013, will occur from 2:42 a.m. to 4:42 a.m. at Lake Shawnee in Topeka, Kansas.

Jeff Simpson of Brainerd, Minnesota, and In-Fisherman's digital editor, said the online calendar delivers -- via an auto-detect system -- the solunar calendar's best fishing times based on the latitude and longitude (of the nearest city or zip code) where the anglers who search the website are located. In short, it automatically delivers personalized best times to online users.


Simpson says, "Mobile users can download what is called a web app to their homepage on their phones or tablets. Lots of people are doing this. We also offer moonrise and moonset, sunrise and sunset. I use it all the time for both fishing and hunting." To accomplish this feat, anglers visit the calendar's site at https://www.in-fisherman.com/solunar-calendar, where they will be prompted to add it to their home screen.


What's more, if anglers are going on a vacation or fishing a tournament at different locales than their home waterways, they merely have to type in the nearest town or ZIP code to the waterway they will be fishing, and the system will provide the anglers with the exact best fishing times based on the latitude and longitude of the waterways that they will be fishing. For example, if a group of anglers from Lawrence, Kansas, will be vacationing and fishing at Gull Lake, Minnesota, they merely enter at the top of the solunar calendar's web page the ZIP code for Nisswa, Minnesota, which is 56468, or enter Nisswa, MN.

Too see how the times change as the latitude and longitude change, an angler can type Lawrence, KS or 66044 in the space immediately above the calendar, and then type in Gilbertsville, KY or 42044 in the same space. The best fishing times for fishing Kentucky Lake near Gilbertsville, Kentucky on Dec. 31, 2013 is from 8:27 a.m. to 10:27 a.m. and from 8:58 p.m. to 10:58 p.m., while at Clinton Lake near Lawrence, Kansas, the best times will occur from 9:11 a.m. to 11:11 a.m. and 9:42 p.m. to 11:42 p.m.

As 2014 unfolds, we would like finesse anglers to tell us if solunar calendar has any bearing on how, when and where they fish.
