X-mas island flies

I have always been under the impression that the larger bones on X-mas island are found in deeper water (~4'). Thus, flies with more weight than simple bead chain would be called for. In the picture of the flies (by the way, nice ties!) all flies used bead chain. I use 5/32 and micro-mini's (don't know the weight) on a % of my bonefish flies for deeper water situations. I know the topic title was "some" x-mas island flies, not "all," so, do you also carry an assortment of heavier flies as well when you make the leap to x-mas Is? I have wanted to fish x-mas Is. for a while and when the opportunity arises I'd like as much ammo as I can get my hands on to maximize the trip.
