Cutler Drain Canal Number C-100 Fishing Description

About Fishing in Cutler Drain Canal Number C-100, FL

There are several species you can catch in Cutler Drain Canal Number C-100. Among them is the butterfly peacock, also known as peacock bass. This wildly popular game fish is best caught during the day, in areas with shades coming from bridges and culverts. You can access them from a canal bank or you can ride a boat. Peacock bass are very active in spots with fallen trees, canal ends, intersections, drop-offs, lily pads, and other structures. Most anglers agree that live bait is the simplest way to catch them. A golden shiner of about three inches in length is a popular bait option.

Another species present in the canal is largemouth bass. For many anglers, this species is also a prized catch for its large size. Florida's largemouth bass are larger than the general population, making the state a favorite destination for anglers all over the world. They’re also called the “tackle buster,” because they are ready to bite almost any time, whether you’re using live bait or artificial lures. When fishing largemouth bass, keep in mind that they are typically located near cover such as grass, rock, wood, and lily pads because it allows them to hide better when stalking their prey.

Midas cichlids are another species prevalent in Miami-Dade canal systems. Also called the “red devil cichlid,” anglers can usually spot them taking cover in submerged logs and vegetation. When fishing them, it’s important to remember that this species has small mouths, so small hooks work better. Although live bait is a more popular option, artificial lures also succeed in getting them to bite.

The state of Florida has fishing rules and regulations designed to keep its species and anglers safe. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission provides a comprehensive report on these, as well as on licenses and permits. Be sure to check them out before you go.
