Lure recommendation for Belize

Heading to Belize next week and taking my trout rod. Was told they catch smaller tarpon and bonefish off the dock we will be staying at. Any lure recommendations?

We stay at a place on the south end of San Pedro from time to time. There are tarpon circling constantly at night. They don't want anything but flies. My kid hooked one on a curly tailed grub, but it was not the norm.

For bones think crappie tackle.

Topwaters! If you are staying San Pedro you can can get some local guys to take you to some of the shallow water mangroves. Your chances of catching cuberas, cudas, and maybe even a snook are good this time of year.

Not sure where your going to in Belize but I would plan on smaller the better and assume clear water conditions. The bones are easier with a fly but a small bucktail jig might do it. You will also see permit in the same water.

Swim Bait?

What size do you use? I am looking for a bait that I can cast pretty far from the upper helm of my boat when I spot them. Is there a hard swim bait that also works well like a sub-surface lure?

If it's not too late, why don't you e-mail someone down there and ask them? Just a thought.....
