Bonefish and Giant Trevally Fishing Christmas Island

TOUR REFERENCE: CHR002
Overview
Christmas Island has diverse habitats and endless flats, providing unique opportunities for both the novice and the expert fly angler.

It is one of the top Bonefish locations in the world; its location is so close to the equator that you can catch Bonefish all year round (unlike Florida or the Bahamas which experience cool winds). There are also vast numbers of Bonefish and even novice anglers can easily learn the craft of fly-fishing and catch 10 plus fish a day. For the experienced fly angler the opportunity to cast your fly at large Bonefish awaits.

Our guides have been fishing and guiding these flats for many years. They know just which flats to be on for certain tides and certain moon phases. Each day anglers depart via boat for the day's fishing. Virtually all fishing will be done while wading and entails sight casting to visible fish in shallow water. Christmas Island's plentiful Bonefish average 2-4 pounds with each week presenting numerous opportunities at larger specimens in the 5-10 pound class. For anglers keen on the challenge of Trevally, (Giant, Golden, Blue Fin, and Striped) the guides at Christmas Island are highly skilled and passionate in their pursuit. While presenting a somewhat higher stakes option to Bone fishing, the results are often spectacular.

My previous trips have only added to my love and passion for this destination on previous trips fishing very hard and only targeting GT’s I managed to land over 36 fish with the biggest touching 106lb all on the fly (fishing does not get much better than this believe me) It is defiantly not a destination for the faint hearted as on this trip I broke 1 12# rod and lost over 10 fly lines.

Just when you think things could not get any better, they do. For I am pleased to announce we have just finalised an agreement with a brand new lodge on the island. Not only will we now be able to offer accommodation with hot showers and air conditioning, but also with superior food. Plus our new operation operates fiberglass boats of two different sizes; the smallest are ideal for fishing in and around the lagoon or for local offshore fishing. The larger boats with 300hp outboards have now opened up a new world, water that was only accessible by truck and then fishing from the shore all around the island is now available from boats. This allows us to offer our customers access to water that some of the other lodges can only dream of reaching.

Another important development is with boats that can now reach further afield is the introduction of proper VHF radios that are always in contact with the base station at the main camp.

Currently the camp has just 4 air-conditioned rooms but we have just secured plots of land either side of the current lodge and over the other side of the road. The plan is during 2013 to redevelop the whole site, building more accommodation and move the boat maintenance yard to across the road. There’s no need to travel each morning to the boats as all our boats will pick you up from the beach directly behind the accommodation.
