Sleepy Little Town Marina

I love Indianola! Sleepy little historical city on the bay. Best place to get fresh shrimp right off the boat is at the Marina at a great price!! The boats go out early morning... read more

Kind of run down, but lots of fun. Fresh bait, inexpensive camping, and lots of small trout. If you like catch and release, this fishing location provides lots of Speckled Trout Action. The trout are mostly "Schoolies" around 12-14 inches, so they are not legal to keep. A diligent fisherman can catch 50-100 per night of fishing under lights with... More

I love Indianola! Sleepy little historical city on the bay. Best place to get fresh shrimp right off the boat is at the Marina at a great price!! The boats go out early morning almost daily and come in before noon. Nice patio to relax under.

Area is well kept and the fishing is great. Getting bait is not an issue and boat launching is no problem. I would definitely recommend the area.

While in the area with family, the boys wanted to get a hook wet . This place was perfect, even under bad conditions. High winds and rain, but they have large covered deck with tables and chairs. A variety of live bait to fish off the deck . While sitting watching the kids fish, we ordered food for the group.... More

Well, I was looking for the old ghost town and wandered into this place. I wasn't here to fish, so I can provide no comments on that. The old town site is probably the most interesting place on this stretch of coast - but that is just my opinion.

Wonderful, shabby, oldtime bathhouse and store. Out in back they have a covered concrete patio, where you can sit, drink beer, and have a burger or side orders , watch the boats,and talk to people. You can even bring a fishing rod and for about five bucks, you can fish from it.

First of all, don't be confused. This is truly a fishing marina, made for fishing, so don't expect a fancy place with fancy food. This makes it a great place to sit and relax on the water. On occasion there are bands, which does make for a fun atmosphere--but again, it's a fishing marina. The store front is a perk--they... More
