About Snapper Creek

Snapper Creek fishing is a popular destination for South Florida anglers. This canal consistently produced excellent catches of largemouth bass and butterfly peacock. Snapper Creek canal anglers may also encounter Snook moving inland Biscayne Bay.

Fishing on the Snapper Creek Canal

The main canal is 12.3 miles long, averages 12 feet in-depth, and ranges from 50 to over 100 feet in width. The north end of the channel is narrower and shallower than the southeast end. There are five boat accessible lateral canals and a small seven-acre lake up to 22 feet deep.

These largest predators travel throughout the canals, but they tend to concentrate under bridges. Snapper Creek anglers can also catch jaguar guapotes, Oscars, or spotted tilapia. These illegally released non-native fish have posed a threat to native species, are good to eat, and you can keep every one you catch. Jaguar guapotes resemble black crappie (speckled perch) with many small sharp teeth. Oscars are bream-shaped fish with a red or orange circle at the base of the tail, and they have a thick coat of protective mucus on their bodies. Spotted tilapia is also bream-shaped, golden in color with black spots or bars, and some adults have red on their bodies.

Reliable and Good

Snapper Creek
Bassonline guides work hard for their money. They will put you on fish, even when fishing is slow. Been using their services for years and have yet to have anything less than a blast. Can't wait to go fishing again.

Great time

Snapper Creek
The wife and I went for our anniversary and were very pleased with how we were treated. The hotel let us check in early and went out of their way allow us a early check in. We had capt. Wayne for a guide and he got us on the fish. The first day I didn't believe him about getting 10 dozen shiners but he was right we ran out by 10 AM. I enjoyed my whole experiences, easy to book and caught a bunch of fish.

Excellent time with Captain

Snapper Creek
Peacocks w/ Captain Wayne Fellows My son and I had an excellent time with Captain Wayne. We caught and released 30+ peacocks plus much other fish. Captain Wayne was incredible with my 8-year-old son. My son loved him and I could not appreciate more the way that Captain Wayne interacted with him and helped him. If we could give more than 5 stars we would!
