folks, i'm the guy with the kayak thread. my next issue.... i read an old thread that i can't find now in which someone explained to bring light rubber "bait" instead of cranks & spinners etc... it was a great thread. i was wondering about color though. should i get bright and wild, or dark color rigs. i'll be staying on the far southern tip and hope to fish right out back as well as at the split. not much of a guide guy.... i live on lake erie and have fished since i was in diapers. anyway, any tips would be appreciated-dave

You can use anything that looks and acts like a sardine. I have been fishing at the Caye for the last five years and sardines are the best. I also use #4 circle hooks. It allows you to release the fish unharmed. If you're fishing for Permit you'll need some live crabs. If you fishing for some snapper at the split....cut up some hot dogs.
Good Luck and tight lines...

Haywood Curry at Anglers Abroad may be a good resource.

Mike.....

he said he's not a "guide guy".

If he wants a guide I'd have said Heywood or Parnell Coc.

I have not stayed there. The place is beautiful though! Haywood and Heidi are wonderful folk and I'm sure a chat with him will yield very useful information about shore fishing on the caye.

If you stay at their lovely little spot you can walk to the front shore,flats in back, the Split at night, and the mangroves on North Island.
All three in less than one minute.
Chatting with Haywood who lives at the hotel is a big plus.
The hotel profits help support the High School. They are among the Founders.
Lots of small snappers and grunts near shore, Lionfish aren't bad to eat either and are an important invasive fish to reduce numbers.

I have good luck with both. Live is easy to buy at modest prices if you don't have a small cast net.
