Recommended Posts

hey guys i wanted 2 share this with you all,i was out fishing the canal behind the homestead motorsports complex with my nephew, we were using worms,bread balls, spoons,plastic shiners etc..only saw a few small bass,but saw many large ( id say 15lb) grass carps,snook and a tarpon as well,lots of other good sized fish i couldnt identify..the water is brakish and it runs into the bay...has this canal been productive for any 1 here??

Jonny did you pull up any fish? 

I would love to hit that spot, get some snook and tarpon! I bet there is some largemouth bass in there too but it might be to close to the saltwater. I just looked it up on google maps and found a few places to park and pull up to the canal. Looks like an excellent spot. Being so close to Biscayne Bay, this time of year, the Tarpon and Snook are moving into the canals!

parking is not a problem theres a dirt road that runs the length of the canal & open 2 the public,my suggestions is go during the week,early morning right when the sun comes up,thats when ive seen the most fish action..ive hooked up there all sorts of different fish many i dont know what they are, theres alot of small bait fish too..theres alot of wold life in that canal & the water is super clear..tho be careful,ive seen many snakes on the bank(almost stepped on a cotton mouth)& small salt water crocs too.and if you really want a fishing honey hole,theres (an L-SHAPED) canal in the woods cross the street from that canal,but it could only be accessed by atv/4wheel truck 2wards the power plant,u enter the dirt road @ sw 137ave,& make a left @sw 360street & go east 2the end of that dirt road,then turn left into the woods & this is where u need the (atv/4x4)cuse its all woods,dirt,mud,i only do this trip during the dry season in winter,last time i even had to cut a trail thru the forest 2 get 2 this canal.but it was 1000% worth it,FISH HEAVEN is all i can say..let me know if u need any info.im very experinced in that area...good luck..

I've always wondered about that canal. I used to race there all the time and want to come back but it's so far from my house just to fish and not know. Now I might try it, thanks. Plus there are some good trails to 4 wheel across the street I've wanted to explore as well.

I worked with a guy that pulled an 8+ bass out of there with a fly rod and big streamer. Big bass in that system.

When I get the winch installed on my jeep I might head down there. I'm always a catch and release unless I'm in saltwater. I'll PM ya if I can get down there.
