    Default Wind and tides info.

    I have found this site to be handy https://smartfishingtides.com/

    Also there is a weather app called “Windy” which is a good tool to have in your arsenal. https://www.windy.com/?35.983,-78.538,5
    Check them out you might like them.

    I've found Windy and Fishweather to be pretty useful.

    The website says that their methodology is proprietary, so they don't get into specifics other than saying that they combine solunar, tidal, and weather data to get the "strike score" and "feeding level". My guess is that they're running a logistic(or maybe linear, some of these variables are amenable to that) regression model on data from one of the NOAA angler surveys-some of those have pretty large, trip-level data going back decades that is available for free download.

    By using statistical models, you can create estimates of the impact of different variables in a way that allows you to sum different ones so that you get the probability of success on a day when the solunar forecast is good, and high tide occurs at first light, etc. The solunar activity level itself is sort of a simpler version of this-it's taking the major/minor period times and I think a couple of other things and turning that into a coefficient that (ostensibly) represents the overall chance of success on a given day.
