Yes sir! You should have some fantastic opportunities in that canal for many species of fish such as: Snook, Redfish, Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Tarpon, Mullet and more. At this time of the year many of the species spend their winter back in the canals. The biggest variable is that all canals are not created equal. What I mean is that some canals have better habitat (similar to docks) that are loaded with barnacles, longer and deeper seawalls, more mangrove shoreline, more oyster bars, deeper water, more current flow etc.
But on average, if there is a canal and it has more then a few inches of water, you can bet there will be fish in it at one time or another. You should try and fish it at different times and tides. Fish it in the morning, daytime, evening. Fish it on the outgoing tide and the incoming tide. Fish it at the high tide and fish it at the low tide. You will also find that the fish will position themselves differently on the outgoing and incoming tide. One thing for sure is I would focus on using two live baits. One being shrimp and the second being fiddler crabs. If I had to use a artificial bait, I would use a jig with a plastic shad tail or jerk bait attached. I would add scent to the plastic if it didn't already have it in it. Pro Cure Scents are the best!
