The Genesis and Passion Behind Wolfpack Fishing Charters

Captain Zachary Gaza is a 30 year old licensed Captain from New Buffalo, MI in Michigan’s Southwest corner. Zach’s father, Donald Gaza, got him into fishing at a young age and inspired him to chase his dreams of becoming a world class fishing guide.

Embarking on the Journey

Captain Zach’s deep connection with the water began at the College of Charleston, where he pursued studies in Anthropology and Archaeology with a focus on Marine Archaeology. Immersed in the Maritime Research Division of South Carolina, he contributed to the recovery and documentation of marine-based historical artifacts and prehistoric animal remains. Achieving Divemaster and rescue diving certifications in Utila, Honduras, marked his evolution into a professional scuba diver.

Post-graduation, Zach returned to Northwest Indiana and Southwest Michigan, contributing to his father’s environmental cleanup company while laying the groundwork for his own fishing guide service. In the summer of 2020, an inaugural musky fishing expedition on Lake St. Clair proved transformative for Zach.

However, this newfound passion was juxtaposed with tragedy. Following this memorable trip, Zach learned of the sudden loss of his father, Don Gaza, a key inspiration for his dreams of becoming a professional fishing guide. Don, an avid fisherman renowned for his walleye prowess, coined their close-knit group of friends as the “Wolfpack.” This term not only inspired Captain Zach’s fishing guide service but embodied the essence of his approach—fostering a community that uplifts and builds each other’s skills, knowledge, and love for fishing.

Musky fishing, though demanding physically, mentally, and emotionally, captivated Captain Zach. The thrill of catching these majestic giants became an addiction, setting the stage for Wolfpack Fishing Charters and Guide Service. The mission is clear—to offer a positive fishing experience rich in memories, knowledge, skill development, and a supportive atmosphere with the possibility of landing trophy fish.

In the summer of 2021, Captain Zachary Gaza officially founded Wolfpack Fishing Charters and Guide Service, launching musky fishing guide services in June 2022 and walleye fishing guide services in March 2023 from Detroit, MI, covering Lake St. Clair and its connecting waterways.
