About Aerojet Canal Number C-111, FL

Aerojet Canal Number C-111 is a fresh water canal and cultural feature in Florida’s Miami-Dade County at Homestead near Key Largo. It has an elevation of three feet or one meter and can be found south of United States Highway Canal Number C-109. The canal acts as a gutter for south Florida’s watershed. 

The canal was built and dredged for the Aerojet Corp. in the 1960’s when the company was building massive moon rocket engines that had to be barged. The rocket plant has now been closed for decades but the canal still sucks water from Florida Bay and pipes it east across U.S. 1 to Barnes Sound. Because of this, the canal has drained the Everglades of vital water for over 50 years but is now being remedied by the South Florida Water Management District through $25 million dollars worth of restoration work.

All About Fishing in Aerojet Canal Number C-111, FL

The Aerojet Canal Number C-111 is a popular freshwater angling destination for largemouth bass, butterfly peacock bass and black drum. Anglers can also find bream, gar, oscar, snook, crevalle jack, red snapper, spotted tilapia and tarpon in and near the canal area. Because of the canal having little water pressure, bass can grow in big sizes. Fishing at the canal can be a peaceful experience as the area offers not much noise for those who want a relaxing fishing trip. 

The C-111 offers multiple boat ramp and launch areas but anglers can still do some fishing inshore on the canal’s banks. Most anglers headed out to the canal commonly do some drift fishing,trolling, still fishing, bait casting, and fly fishing. Fishing in or near cliffs, steep shore banks, gradual shores, inlets, outlets, fallen trees, canal intersections, sharp bends, and dead ends garner the most productive catch results. Sport fishes also gather in the shade of pump structures. Good fishing opportunities are also offered on shoreline vegetation, rip-rap, and even some residential seawalls in lateral canals.
