Fishing the Canals is a great way to get out of the wind and still experience some good fishing. In many of the developed areas, there will be canals that have homes as well as some businesses such as marinas, restaurants and hotels along the canals. There will usually be plenty of docks and possibly some rock and mangroves in these canals. All types of fish will relate to this cover. Some of the common fish that are caught in canals are snook, redfish, flounder and sheepshead, but the size and depth of the canal will dictate what type of fish you may catch.
