Buendia Press released a comprehensive guide to Kayak Fishing in the heart of Florida’s Nature Coast December 14th, 2018. “Finding the Treasures of the Trails – Kayak Fishing Citrus County” was authored by noted “yak fisherman” Gary Rankel.
The 156 page guide provides a thorough review of all things kayak fishing, including many how-to tips and tricks that you haven’t seen before. Twenty-six color maps depict launch sites, fishing routes and proven hotspots for targeting redfish, snook and seatrout in and around the Withlacoochee, Crystal, Homosassa and Chassahowitzka Rivers bordering the Gulf of Mexico as well as largemouth bass and other freshwater species in the Tsala Apopka Chain of lakes to the east.
Newbies to the sport, as well as anglers who’ve paddled around the marsh a time or two, should find it both educational and enjoyable. Eco-tourists visiting Florida’s Nature Coast to paddle, observe our manatees or dive for scallops may as well.
The book is the third in the Treasures of the Trails series. The first two books covered hiking, biking and paddling in and around Citrus County. As was the case on those two guides, ” Kayak Fishing Citrus County” features the graphic art and cartography of Tom Craig of The Citrus Trails Alliance.
