Fishing and Species
Christmas Island is known for the vast and seemingly limitless amount of wadeable flats. The primary fishing is wade fishing for Bonefish and various species of Trevally. Fly fishing for Giant Trevally is hunting and being opportunistic. There is also great fishing for Triggerfish. As with all bonefishing no matter the location, fish come on the flats to feed. The approach here is to cover as much water as needed to be into fish. The boat is used as transportation only for flats fishing.
Christmas Island, Kiribati

Well known as the most consistent wade fishery on the planet, Christmas Island has been a must-fish destination for over 30 years.Ikari House opened in 2008. It is located waterfront on the point in London where the lagoon meets the ocean. They are big on hospitality and attention to detail.

Ikari House has a very experienced guide staff. Senior guides (and Zen Masters) Simon and English are also part of the staff. The previously known as "the younger guides", are now outstanding and have game, with a great eye for the fish and flats to fish.

Most of the fishing is accessed via boats in the lagoon. They have 5 center console with a 140 hp 4-stroke; two smaller 2-3 person boats with center console and a 115 hp 4-stoke; and one outriggers. They are the only lodge on the Island with Planing hull boats! Anglers can fish on the outside flats by the former Korean wreck, M Site and the back of the lagoon, all accessible by truck. Offshore fishing is also an option, with their large boat being the best tool on the island for the job. All guides and boatman carry radios, which are on at all times. This is good for safety and efficiency on the water.

The chef is Tess, whose cooking is the best on the island. The dinners are something to look forward to, offering two entrées each evening. They feature local fish and lobster, along with chicken, pork and beef. The quality and the quantity are beyond expectations. For breakfast and lunches there are multiple choices.

The lodge is constructed of concrete block, similar to the other lodges on the island. Each room has a/c with a thermostat. The showers have on demand hot water. Those anglers who have been to Christmas before know that this is a luxury.
