Snapper Creek Canal
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.
