Trip Description: 


 Powderhorn Lake is located just south of Port Lavaca, and north of Port O’Connor. It connects to W. Matagorda Bay just below Lavaca Bay. The water depth ranges from about 2-5 feet with numerous sand flats, grassy areas for wade fishing, and marshes with shallow back lakes to explore. PACK has made this trip a few years back... in March / April and the fishing has always been good.  Could not get dates I wanted so May it is.  
 We used to stay at the cabins and RVs at the Indianola Marina.  But the accommidations have been run down.. We still use the Launch and the marina has food and groceries.  Great burgers, and they used to have a 10.00 steak night on Friday.   We eat on the dock and watch the fisherman on the deck.

To see more about the marina there website info is below:   http://www.indianolafishingmarina.com/

in the Past we have rented this house near Magnolia Beach.  I have rented it again and it sleeps 6.  There are 6 beds so I will limit the house to 6 or 7 if someone wants to sleep on the couch. 

House rental is 390.00 total for two nights... so $65 per person for 6 of us.   

If you plan on staying with me at the house I would like to receive a $65 deposit hold for your spot.  You will have the spot when payment is received.  If you have to cancel you will get your $ back when someone claims your spot.   I can cancel up until 1 month out... April 17th for full refund.  After that I it will be 50% refundable till May 3rd.... 

If you dont get in on time, there are also places to camp and more houses.  I can help if we are full and you need a place to stay.   There is a small hotel on magnolia beach I believe.
