Exceptional Fishing Guide :: Maine Fishing Adventures

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Fishing like any sport takes special expertise, but guiding ads another level of skill possessed by only a few. In the State of Maine, we take this skill seriously with special licensing and training. Selecting the right guide will make your trip not just an outing but a memorable adventure. When the Lodge coordinates a trip or designs an adventure package, we do so to create once in a lifetime experiences that you will remember for a long time to come. All Lodge guides have been vetted and our best guides are exclusive to the Lodge only. Adventure lodges, like the Lodge at Moosehead Lake, hang their reputation on this experience. This is why we are so proud to include Bob Howe, premier Registered Master Maine Guide, in our arsenal of skilled guides. Bob has guided for the Lodge for many years.

DSC02043Bob Howe has been hunting, fishing and trapping since the age of eight and has been guiding guests from all over the world for almost forty years. As a full-time guide, Bob has the ability to recognize and adjust to the ever changing situations of fish, wildlife and their environment. He is uniquely gifted in his ability to “read” a guest and provide the best possible experience for their expertise and expectations. His patience is amazing as he teaches young or old, introducing them to all types of fishing and making another lover of the sport. Bob has also acquired a passion for cooking and often shares his skills with guests or tantalizes them with biscuits on a stick, grilled strawberries or bean hole beans (cooked in the ground in a Dutch oven) as an accompaniment to your catch.

In addition to being a full-time guide, Bob owns and operates Maine Guide Snowshoe and Pine Grove Lodge, a four season sporting camp in Bingham, Maine. Bob is involved in many philanthropic endeavors including the “Pine Grove Program”, which Bob founded. Through this program, he provides free outdoor adventures to our nation’s veterans and first-responders.

According to Randy Flannery, owner and operator of Wilderness Escape Outfitter, Bob Howe is the best all around guide in the State of Maine. Bob has been featured in Field and Stream magazine, Outdoor magazine, Wall Street Journal and the London Post. He often is requested to council with political representatives on the Maine wilderness as a member of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine.

Bob is not just a great guide but truly an exceptional guide willing to share his love and passion for Maine and the great outdoors with our many guests and nature lovers.

What makes for a great night’s sleep?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

At the Lodge we take a good night’s sleep very serious.  We know are guests are often a little stressed, over worked and need to decompress.  Here is what we offer at the Lodge:

  1. The very best mattresses money can buy – no kidding. Dennis & Chloe try each one out personally.
  2. 500 plus thread count sheets, pressed as smooth as silk. Close your eyes and imagine crawling in.  Great sensation.
  3. Take a deep breath – that‘s fresh, clean air with a hint of pine.  A wonderful smell. No scented soap or fabric softeners at the Lodge.
  4. Open your windows on a summer night and feel the cool lake air on your face. A good night’s sleep should also include a cool room.
  5. And while those windows are open, you will hear almost nothing.  Such amazing quiet.  Maybe the sound of a loon calling to its mate.

That is all. Then you drift off.
