The year is 1539. The month is June. A man born in Extremadura, Spain leaves his boot prints along the Cove of The Withlacoochee. Hernando de Soto leading six hundred Spaniards treads through the banks of the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and the Withlacoochee River. Present day, you’ll see a myriad of homes along the Citrus County Florida lakes and river waterfront.
Cove of the Withlacoochee
On the east side of Citrus County, Florida, there is a bend in the Withlacoochee River. This is historically known as the Cove of the Withlacoochee. Within this bend, nestles the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes. The aesthetics of the area have changed little since de Soto came through in his search for gold. The great moss draped oaks and cypresses cast their peaceful reflections on the teeming waters. The ospreys still plunge their talons in these waters to secure a meal. Most notably, many residents of and visitors to our area now enjoy the beauty, serenity and the numerous other pleasures this area has to offer on the Citrus County Florida lake and waterfront.
Imagine sitting on your back porch enjoying a cool drink while gazing out at the tranquil water. Suddenly, there is a splash in a cluster of lily pads. You see a leopard frog leap a foot in the air as the mossy back of a lunker bass breaks the surface. If you are an angler, your blood races and you reach for the rod you keep on hand. If you are not a member of the fishing clan, you still thrill at witnessing this primeval struggle for sustenance and survival.
