Another Epic Trip

Craig A pike

Craig PikeCraig Annunziata is one of our many repeat guests who help make Gangler's so special. We are fortunate to have a repeat clientele rate of close to 70% and it is guests like Craig who make this job fun! Craig has had many exceptional trips shared in 'The Current' and his group's 2019 adventure rivaled them all. His brother Russell has not fished in probably 40 years and his 2019 results would set any veteran Canadian fisherman's heart a flutter. Craig sent us a short note and photos of his July trip to Gangler's.

Craig PikeHey Ken,

We had another epic time at Gangler's. The Ganglers' team, Craig Pikefrom the Chef to the Pilots to the Guides were phenomenal. The food was great as were the upgrades to the camp. The Lodge looked better than ever. Oh, and then there was the fishing. We had 14 trophies in 5 days and my brother, who hasn't fished since the 70's, had a Grand Slam rounded out with a 47 inch pike. Fortunately, I bested him with a 48 inch pike that doubled as a hog. Even Craig Pikemore unbelievably, 3 of us caught the largest pikes of our lives. This was my 14th year at Gangler's and the Ganglers' experience gets better every year. Craig PikeIn a world that has gone bonkers, it's nice to enjoy some down time from the nonsense.   In that regard, I've attached some of our fish pictures and a picture of my Group's hands down favorite hour at Gangler's,  Craig Pikewhich was parking the boats near the end of our last day because we were all tired of catching fish.   Really. We caught 6 trophies that day including 2-44s, a 47 and a 48. Beyond the 2 other trophies and 300 other fish we caught that day,   Craig Pikewe felt it was time to stop and enjoy some down time with our guides, who have become our friends over the years.

See you next year!

First Year GPS Approach- What a Difference !runway

After a long 2 1/2 year wait for Nav Canada to approve and publish our GPS approach, that day finally arrived last January. All we can say is AMAZING ! Having this approved created a licensed approach on both our North and South approaches. Instead of aircraft needing a minimum cloud ceiling of 1000'- 1200' to come in, it lowered the limit to 500'. It was VERY costly but the pilots loved it, the guests loved it, and we were ecstatic. Our charters this summer did NOT MISS one single approach and all charters were successful on their first attempt. We would rate it as one of the most significant improvements we have made since building the lodge. It is a definite ADVANTAGE and should be a significant factor when choosing your next remote fly-in location. At Gangler's, our commitment to your satisfaction and safety are second to none.  


Please Donate to help Abaco, Bahamas


Abaco LogoThe Ganglers creative team enjoyed an awesome visit to our good friend Oliver White's Abaco Lodge on Abaco Island, Bahamas last October. Great fishery, great lodge, and most importantly, great , friendly people. We are crushed watching the images of destruction the island has now experienced from Hurricane Dorian and waiting to hear word on the safety of the guides and staff and their families. Oliver has now created a GoFundMe page for fundraising efforts to help these people. Please take a minute to visit the site and assist these wonderful people. The site address is below.
