New Release: Finding the Treasures of the Trails – Kayak Fishing Citrus County

Yak angler, Gary Rankel, has authored a 152 page guide to kayak fishing on Florida’s Nature Coast:  “Finding the Treasures of the Trails – Kayak Fishing Citrus County”.

The book’s how-to section provides a comprehensive review of all things kayak fishing, including tips, tricks and techniques.

The where-to-go section contains 27 detailed color satellite maps depicting launch sites, fishing routes and hotspots for targeting redfish, snook and seatrout in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as largemouth bass and other freshwater species in the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes.   

“Folks visiting this area to swim with manatees, dive for scallops or take part in the bigmouth bass tournaments or renowned tarpon and shallow grouper fisheries, may also wish to experience the Old Florida piscatorial paddling paradise.”  Gary Rankel.


Further information on our area and fisheries is available at the Nature Coast Kayak Fishers website: ( which also includes a link for ordering the guide.
