Fresh Water Fish Attractors

Fish Attractor Project

This project builds "fish attractors" within the Hernando, Inverness, and Floral City Pools.

These attractors are constructed by using suitable brush such as; citrus, oak, Christmas trees, etc., and anchor them to the lake bottom with floats attached to the upper part of the brush.

  • Monies derived from the additional $1.00 received from fishing licenses, no ad-valorem taxes are used
  • The Citrus County Landfill accepted Christmas Trees, (for free), for the project
  • This was a 3-year contract with Perry Construction
  • The Project started 02/01/2010 In the Inverness Pool
  • FWC will be conducting a creel study at the end of the project
