Kind of a long haul for bait isn't it?

i've caught fish at the split using sprat as bait.

i've caught fish elsewhere in belize using frozen, defrosted shrimp.

snapper loooove shrimp.

i just use a baited hook + bobbin = handline.
i was taught by a friend on tobacco caye and have had some pretty good luck at times for an inexperienced fishing type.

just at sunrise is a good time to go. be careful at the split---lots of stuff under the water for your line to become tangled on. i've spent my share of time diving to retrieve my hooks!

good luck!

yes, its a long haul but right now if
I want to go fishing I have to drill a
hole in the ice! Plus I want to test my
theory. I think live shrimp would get those
Tarpon in the split to bite...along with whatever else is in the neighborhood.

I'll try the shrimp when I head down in a couple of weeks. I'll also bring a sabiki rig to catch bait fish.

Not that my rods will be heavy enough to actually land a tarpon of any size.

The Tarpon in the split, at least the ones
that I saw averaged about 18-15 lbs.
I've caught 60 lb Tarpon on very light
tackle. If you can avoid getting broken
off on any objects I don't think you
will have a problem. Looking forward to
your report(s). Best of luck

I don't know what I would do with a tarpon other than release it.... with pleasure. I'm heading down in a week and will either post from there or upon my return.
