A lifetime fisherman, Greg Grimes’ lake management career began in 1991 while pursuing his undergraduate biology degree. Greg then went on to join a lake management company, and this desire to acquire more knowledge led him to obtain a Masters in Fisheries from the University of Georgia in 1998. Prior to earning his Masters, Greg founded Aquatic Environmental Services, Inc (AES) in 1996. Time has flown by since then, as it doesn’t seem like he’s been working on ponds for over a quarter of a century, now!
Greg oversees AES’ day-to-day operations of the company, with his main focus being the Fishery Management Division. He travels the eastern U.S. helping clients in their quest of growing the trophy fish of their dreams. Although many days are spent in the office, Greg does find time to get out on the shock boat, as well as designing and laying client lakes.
Greg’s written numerous pond management articles, conducted fishery seminars, and worked on literally thousands of ponds and lakes. He can tackle most fishery issues, but realizes lakes are dynamic, ever-changing environments that require innovative methodologies in order to meet tomorrow’s goals.
In his spare time, Greg can usually be found enjoying the great outdoors with his family.
