About Your Guide in Greg's Own Words
My family has run a lodge on Eagle Lake since 1948, which was build by my grandfather Sam. My parents wanted to retire and sold the lodge in 2009, but I maintained my guiding business. I have spent my whole life on Eagle Lake and nobody knows the fishing like I do.
I started guiding when I was 13 years old. Fishing helped pay for college and allowed me to graduate from broadcasting and find work in the television industry for 12 years. Much of my experience involved being a camera operator for a fishing show. I have been back in Northwestern Ontario and guiding full-time with my business, Eagle Eye Guiding, since 1990.
I am a multi-species guide. My goal is to produce large fish each day. Fish species depends on which fish the customer wishes to target. My guiding has taken me to a few different parts of the world. I have guided on Great Bear Lake in the North West Territories and have fished extensively in Mexico during the winters.
My true passion for fishing is realized by my guests when they fish with me, especially when I am Muskie fishing here on Eagle Lake. These big monsters definitely get me excited. I have fished and won a few local tournaments for both Walleyes and Muskies and was the North American Junior Champion in 1976 with Muskies Inc.
Tournaments are fun but I still prefer the friendships that are developed with the day to day fishing with my clients. I really enjoy teaching children and beginners to fish and to respect the environment that we are so fortunate to be able to use.
Many of my clients return year after year and many great friendships have developed over the years. It would be my pleasure to have you and your friends or family join me for a truly CANADIAN fishing experience.
