A renowned Musky and Walleye guide, Capt. Marc has had clients from the U.S.A, Germany, England, France, and Canada. He's a passionate angler and has won many plaudits for his work in conservation and preservation of some of the most prestigious fish in the St. Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers. A professional guide for over 20 years, he's landed at least 40 fish bigger than 50 inches. Capt. Marc collaborates in several MNRF and OMNR projects and studies concerning Muskies and Walleyes, and is a long term educator in the preservation, conservation and safe handling of fish. He was President of Muskies Canada inc., for a year in the early 2000s, and is a founding Spearhead of the first Muskies Canada chapter in Quebec, so there aren't many more qualified guides out there.
