Pat Coyne - Oakville Ontario

"Would have never believed that we would catch 41 Walleye on a Friday afternoon/evening in August. Regan had us on the fish within 5 minutes of leaving the Lodge and his technique had even us infrequent fishing dads landing some keepers. Caught three 24" plus, two 18" plus and at least another six 17"(next year's keepers).  Kept four beauties for dinner Friday and Saturday... very tasty.  Finished off a great father/son weekend with a day of bass fishing out at Regan's favorite spot that he shared with us last year. Lots of fun frogging and caught several good size ones.  Looking forward to our next visit with Regan.

Danielle Bedard - Southern Ontario

“First time musky fishing and it was a success, thanks to Danny. We caught 3, biggest one at 43″. What a blast! Couldn’t have asked for a better first time experience. What a difference having a knowledgeable guide to take you to all the hidden spots to make it a memorable experience. We absolutely loved our tour and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Thanks again, Danny.”

Bob Izumi - Host of The Real Fishing  Show

"This part of the lake is well sheltered allowing us to fish on even windy days. We focused on smallmouth bass when we taped the show there with Regan and they didn’t disappoint us. During our short stay we caught and released several trophy smallies over five pounds. This is one Ontario’s premier smallmouth bass fisheries with very little pressure.  Regan knew 'the spots' and had us on fish right away.  We all had an awesome time and can’t wait to go back!..."

Our Location

Lake Nipissing Charters is located at Mashkinonje Lodge on the West Arm of Lake Nipissing.  This area is ideal because it's sheltered from high winds which often keep anglers off of the main lake for days at a time due to rough waters.  From this location we are able to fish every day regardless of weather conditions and on calmer days, depending on the target species, we may venture to 'the big water' of Lake Nipsising to take advantage of it's large forage basin.  Mashkinonje Lodge offers 12 housekeeping cottages, rental boats, docking and more.  For more information on accommodations please visit  If you are staying at a neighboring lodge on Lake Nipissing we can arrange to pick you up or arrange to meet at our main docks at Mashkinonje.
