Our History

AES, Inc began in 1998 after President, Greg Grimes, received his masters in Fisheries Biology. The company has grown exponentially each year. In 2013, the lake management and aesthetics portion of the business was sold to focus on our passion of fisheries management. Today, because of this unique focus we are an industry leader in our stocking strategies for growing a superior fishery. Our work has taken us to 21 states, and we have worked on over 8,000 bodies of water meeting the goals of each individual client.

We can build a pond from ground zero or turn an existing poor fishery into the trophy lake desired all within a client’s budget. With a passionate staff and superior industry connections we are proud of our achievements in the world of private lake management.

Greg grew up fishing ponds and lakes. Little would he know that he would be so lucky as to work on many lakes as a career a few years later. Founding Principal, Greg Grimes after obtaining his biology degree became manager for a lake management company in 1993. Here he gained valuable experience and went on to receive a Masters degree in Fisheries in 1998 from University of Georgia. Greg has now been involved in the lake service business for over twenty years.
