Chucks Pike


Chuck Walleye

Chuck WalleyeBill Jansen and his family have truly found a home at our Burnie Lake Outpost. They come every two years, take the whole camp for a week, and always slam multitudes of big pike at this Esox mecca. Bill shared a short note and photos of their trip last June.

Dear Ken:

The Jansen party again enjoyed a truly exceptional time at Gangler’s. My 4 sons- Will, Mark, Jeff and David – brother Phil and I found the fishing at Burnie spectacular, as we always do. The pike were big, plentiful and voracious, with numerous Master Angler pike caught and released during the week. While it did take a while to locate the lake trout due to the late ice-out, they were large (and delicious) when found.

Chuck WalleyeBut the reason that we always return to Gangler’s has to do with much more than the fishing. We receive only the finest of service from the time the trip is booked until it is over. Unlike other fly-in camps, the cabins at Burnie actually get better with time. The new floating dock made everything easier and the screened in porches made the evenings even more relaxing. The boats and motors operated flawlessly. And our camp manager did everything to make our stay ideal, from starting a motor at 5:30 am prior to my early morning fishing, to building a campfire every evening. What separates Chuck WalleyeGangler’s from all other fly in lodges is the dedication to make everything perfect and the spirit to treat every guest like family.

See you again soon

Spring Update

Things seem to be moving along for a normal spring opening. Our area received a ton of snow last year and a lot of it came early, insulating the ice formation and resulting in smaller than normal lake ice. Warming temps have arrived and the large amount of snow should take the ice out quickly. The next month of weather is the key! One thing for sure – opening water levels will be high!
