Kiribati, 1,200 miles south of Hawaii
Christmas Island has the best bonefishing in the world. That’s a bold statement, but ask those who have fished at Christmas, and they will agree.
There are more flats, more bonefish, and less anglers at Christmas than any other bonefish destination. Experienced anglers can often average 15 to 20 fish a day,
and a 30 fish day is possible anytime. When you add to those numbers the missed takes, hook pulls, breakoffs, refusals and misplaced casts, you begin to understand
how much fishing action you will experience. Although there are a lot of bonefish in the 2 to 3 pound range, make no mistake about it.
There are good numbers of huge bonefish at Christmas. Anglers are spooled by big bonefish most every week.
Many anglers see bonefish weighing in the double digits on a daily basis.
Christmas Island is the world’s largest coral atoll and a virtual paradise for stalking bonefish. Having almost single-handedly brought the sport of fly-fishing for bonefish into the public consciousness, Christmas Island remains one of the best destinations in the world for both beginning and advanced saltwater anglers alike. The reasons for this are many. First, the Island’s vast hard sand flats enable anglers to wade fish all day in relative solitude. Second, the flats hold great numbers of bonefish that cruise in shallow water, providing anglers with constant opportunities or “shots” throughout their visit. And last, but certainly not least, the atoll’s proximity to the equator (less than 200 miles) has blessed Christmas Island with consistently good weather, which enables a quality fishing experience year round. While the majority of the island’s bonefish average 2-4 pounds, fish in the 5-10 pound class are always a real possibility as are several species of trevally.
