What people are saying

It's rare that I write reviews, but I felt compelled to after my day of fishing with Eric July 14th on 31 Mile Lake. I read all the other reviews and agree with them all. They are all 5 stars, and with reason. Eric is a wonderful guide, entertaining, fun to spend a day fishing with, well prepared and very knowledgeable. What happened that day was a GAME CHANGER for me. My friend and I requested that we focus on lake trout, as we've not had a lot of success fishing them on our own on public lakes, often getting skunked. With Eric, in one day we caught 16 lake trout (including an 8 lb lunker), two white fish and a 4 lb small mouth bass). What happened that day was incredible. A combination of Eric knowing his fish species and habits intimately, being very well equipped with boat, sonars and electric motor and expertise in using them, having explored the lake in advance of our outing, excellent rods and quasi magical tackle and fishing techniques. It was probably the best investment in fishing I've ever made and will change how I will fish from now on. Thank you Eric for an incredible day and I loo forward to doing this again with you as you have a lot more to teach me.

Il est rare que j'écrive des commentaires, mais je me suis senti obligé de le faire après ma journée de pêche avec le 14 juillet sur le lac 31 Mile. J'ai lu tous les autres commentaires et je suis d'accord avec eux. Ils sont tous 5 étoiles, et avec raison. Eric est un guide merveilleux, divertissant, amusant avec qui passer une journée de pêche, bien préparé et très compétent. Ce qui s'est passé ce jour-là a changé le jeu pour moi. Mon ami et moi avons demandé que nous nous concentrions sur le touladi, car nous n'avons pas eu beaucoup de succès à le pêcher nous-mêmes sur les lacs publics, revenant souvent bredouille. Avec Eric, nous avons pêché en une journée 16 touladis (dont un "lunker" de 8 lb), deux poissons blancs et un achigan à petite bouche de 4 lb). Ce qui s'est passé ce jour-là était incroyable. Une combinaison d'Eric connaissant intimement les espèces et habitudes de poissons, étant très bien équipé en termes de bateau, sonars et moteur électrique et une expertise dans leur utilisation, ayant bien exploré le lac avant notre sortie, d'excellentes cannes, ainsi que des leurres et techniques de pêche quasi magiques. C'était probablement le meilleur investissement que j'aie jamais fait dans la pêche et ça changera ma façon de pêcher pour toujours. Merci Eric pour cette journée incroyable et j'ai hâte à ma prochaine sortie avec toi car tu as beaucoup plus à m'apprendre.

July 2021. Can’t say enough about my experience with Eric this week on Lac 31 miles. His friendly nature and experience made my day very memorable. My friend Paul and I caught 19 fish including an 8 pound lake trout. Eric knows his craft like no other and I would highly recommend him for any day of fishing.

J’ai été plusieurs fois à la pêche avec Éric, il a un très beau bateau bien organisé et équipé. À chaque fois, on prend au moins 50 poissons par jour quand on est à l’achigan ou au doré, il a de très bonnes méthodes de pêche et s’adapte aux différentes conditions. Les spots de poissons n’ont pas de secret pour lui, il sait comment les trouver! J’ai pu pêcher le saumon et la truite sur le lac Ontario avec lui, on a pris nos limites et plus, tous des beaux spécimens jusqu’à 24 lbs. Vraiment une belle expérience, je le recommande sans hésiter, vous allez beaucoup apprendre parce qu’il explique très bien.

I’ve been lucky enough to go fishing with Eric on a few occasions, and I can say that he definitely knows his stuff. I had some great outings targeting walleye and bass, and an awesome fishing experience on Lake Ontario catching some big salmon and trout. I learned lots of tips and techniques to use on my next fishing trips, he is willing to take the time to share his knowledge which is great. I would absolutely recommend Eric as an experienced guide, he’ll put you on the fish every time!

"What an experience. Had so much fun and caught a lot of fish. Very knowledgeable fisherman and taught me how to fish drop shot style. Eric ensures that all safety measures are met and followed. Great boat - very well maintained and clean. Has all the proper fishing gear and lures to ensure that I caught fish. I will sure book time with you again soon.

Quelle expérience. Je me suis tellement amusés et j'ai attrapé beaucoup de poissons. Pêcheur très compétent et m'a appris à pêcher le style drop shot. Eric s'assure que toutes les mesures de sécurité sont respectées et suivies. Super bateau - très bien entretenu et propre. Possède tous les equipements de pêche et leurres appropriés pour m'assurer que j'ai attrapé du poisson. Je réserverai certainement du temps avec toi bientôt.

This was my first bass fishing trip with a professional guide and it exceeded my expectations. I left Ottawa that morning thinking what kind of a day I could have, well I ended up with over a dozen big mouths, some over 4 pounds, loads of small mouths and, as a bonus, a few lake trouts. The fishing was fantastic but what really made the trip for me was Captain Clémot and his spectacular Ranger boat. He was patient, very knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher. We really had fun and talked about so many topics while we were fishing around. If you haven't fished for bass with a guide in your life yet, especially Big Rideau Lake, put this on your TO-DO list and call Captain Clémot: I promise you will have a memory that will last you a lifetime. Thank you Eric, see you next year!

Quelle journée j'ai eue avec le capitaine Éric Clémot!! C'était mon premier voyage de pêche à l'achigan avec un guide professionnel et cela a dépassé toutes mes attentes. Je suis parti ce matin-là de Ottawa en pensant à quel type de journée je pourrais avoir, eh bien, je me suis retrouvé avec plus d'une dizaine de grandes bouches, dont certains au dela de 4 livres, une multitude de petites bouches et, en bonus, quelques truites grises. La pêche était fantastique mais ce qui a vraiment fait le voyage pour moi, c'est le capitaine Clémot et son spectaculaire bateau Ranger. Il était patient, très compétent et un excellent professeur. Nous nous sommes vraiment amusés et avons parlé d’une multitude de sujets pendant que nous pêchions les environs. Si vous n'avez jamais expérimenté la pêche à l'achigan avec un guide dans votre vie, en particulier le Lac Big Rideau, mettez-cela sur votre liste de TO-DO et appelez le capitaine Clémot: je vous promets que vous en reviendrez avec de magnifiques souvenirs qui vous dureront toute une vie. Merci Éric, à l'année prochaine!

Firstly, I would like to congratulate my good friend and fishing partner Eric on his new journey. It wasn't a difficult decision after years of hunting and fishing together for Eric and I to combine our skills & compete in the biggest bass tour in Canada, The Renegade Bass Tour. In terms of fishing 🎣 generally, Eric is the most dedicated and knowledgable person I have fished with. Our success and TV show on Rogers TV reveals exactly the person he is . Being a guide is just another way for him to share and show everyone how fishing can bring memories for life. He will be a good teacher and anyone who can spend time with one of the best fisherman in the region will not regret it. Enjoy...have fun ... catch the big one !!!!!!!!!

"So, you're thinking of going on a fishing charter with Eric Clemot! Well, stop thinking about it and just go. If you want to catch fish, he's your guy. My first outing with Eric, we caught 86 Bass - all day action, with many over 3.5 lbs. Over the last several years fishing with Eric, we've never been skunked. On many of these outings we've had all day action. As your guide, Eric has a tremendous amount of experience. I'm thinking he's got fish DNA in him. Besides catching fish, you'll find Eric a very personable guy who likes to have a good laugh. Boating with him is also a safe experience. He reads water and sky conditions very well. Safety combined with a few laughs and the likelihood of catching a few fish is a recipe for a perfect day I'd say.

Put us on fish fast and consistently throughout the day. He shows great understanding of the water and fish. Definitely passionate about the sport and it shows with every cast he makes. Top notch equipment and very on point with all the details to make sure you have a good day out on water. I dont hesitate to recommend him for a trip out - had an amazing time that I will not soon forget. Thanks Eric!

I had the pleasure of Eric taking me out with him for a late spring walleye fishing trip on the St. Lawrence river.

It was a treat to watch Eric work out the details of a great jig pattern, constantly tweaking our approach until optimal success was obtained.

While blending a true love of fishing with an analytical approach, it is easy to understand why he has had so much success in the fishing industry.

Many great stories were told and too many walleyes boated to count. I look forward to getting out with Eric again soon.
