Default Headed for Belize!

Wife and I are headed for Belize in early November. Going to stay at Turneffe Flats Lodge for a week. Plan on bringing 8 wts for bonefish, 10 wts for barracuda and permit and an 11 wt for tarpon. Have I covered all the bases? Will try to take some pictures and post upon returning.

My wife and I were at Turneffe Flats 2 years ago. You'll enjoy your stay; great fishing, friendly people, great hosts and knowledgeable guides.

For the Bones, I fished a 7 wt.; overlined with an 8 or 9 wt. line. My wife fished an 8 wt. rod overlined with a 9 wt. line. The Bones at Turneffe are not that large, but the wind is always up; hence the lighter rod/heavier line. For Permit you'll probably be in the lagoon; much less wind than on the outside flats where the Bones are; we used 9 wt. rods/9 wt. line and they worked fine. We didn't see any Tarpon, but I had my 11 wt. rod/11 wt. line with me; just in case.................!

Yep, South Water Caye is an excellent location.
BTW, a "grey jack" is a Crevalle Jack. Big schools of them chase "sprat" (sardines) around the island, as do Barracuda.

My wife went diving while I went fishing. Lodge, meals, staff, accommodations, guides all first rate.
My wife thought the diving was very good. I caught all the bonefish I wanted and had many shots at permit and managed to catch one.
Our second time there.

I have been wanting to do this trip for a long time now, would definitely want to see some photos and hear what it was like. also figured I would pass this on since your photos would be perfect for it.

the company is having a photo competition so you might want to check it out. (not spam just passing it along) have an awesome trip friend.
