MemQuisit Lodge, The Vacation HavenStarting at $92

Situated on 387.5 acres of prime forest land covering 3 1/2 miles of breathtaking shore line at the extreme western end of West Bay on Lake Nipissing, Ontario. You will find a log cabin camp called Memquisit Lodge. The location is ideal for fishing or boating as West Bay is protected from the more boisterous waters of Lake Nipissing which makes it safe for smaller boats and canoes. These waters extend inland to what is known as the West Arm of Lake Nipissing; filled with large and small, wooded, rocky islands with a shore line thickly weeded bays for thirty miles. The clear, clean unpolluted water of Lake Nipissing is noted for small mouth bass, large mouth bass, pickerel (walleye), great northern pike, muskellunge and other game fish.

Most of the lodge dates back to the 1920’s with an addition built in the 60’s to enlarge the dinning room, office and lounge.  In our lounge you will enjoy satellite dish viewing, a cozy fireplace, tools of days gone by hanging over the fireplace mantle, a piano and a small but very interesting library made up of very old books. You will also find our picture albums with photos dating back many, many years.

In our store you find everything you need to make up for the things forgotten at home. You will also find fishing tackle, our own line of clothing and souvenirs

In our kitchen we prepare good wholesome homemade meals for our guests. We assure you that no one leaves feeling hungry. Our meals are preset such as our walleye fish fry on Sundays, our roast beef dinner on Tuesdays, our Turkey dinner on Thursday or our steak night on Fridays. All meals are capped with our fresh homemade pies.

The dinning room overlooking the bay accommodates up to 50 hungry guests at a time. Its old wood plank walls were restored in 2004 to uncover its magnificent history. Its walls are home to several awesome catches from some of our guests. Pictures strategically placed reveal some of our visitors most memorable moments.


Lake Nipissing boasts numerous large bays located at various points over its entirety. West Bay is one of the largest bays found on the most west end of the big part of the lake. The bay itself consists of numerous smaller bays, hundreds of islands, large areas of open water, plenty of rock shoals and several creeks. Since West Bay / West Arm consists of many bays, creeks, channels, islands and rock shoals it becomes is a prime region for exceptional fishing.

Running short drifts over areas that have weed or rock structures is the most common way to catch walleyes at our lodge although back trolling and still fishing when the winds are not agreeable will also produce nice fish. Tackle used is as simple as lead jigs 1/4 to 3/8 oz in various color choices; Keep in mind that our water is very stained so brighter color can be more effective.

Northern Pike is caught one of three ways. If the wind is perfect, drifting anywhere in the bay is usually fruitful. Casting along the weeded edges using spoons, crank-baits and spinner baits will assure you success. Trolling can be done throughout the bay.

Bass are caught the same way as caught in any other lake. The small mouth likes to hold off on rock points and underwater rock structure where they prey on crayfish, their primary source of food. As for the large mouth, there is no shortage of cover in west bay when it comes to targeting these fish. Open area weed beds can be targeted with a variety of casting lures.

Musky is caught one of two ways, naturally casting or trolling. One is not more productive than the other, it is all in personal preference and covering a lot of area is the key. Most areas fished or targeted have a variety of structure from open areas of South Muskrat to small coves along the south shore, which have deeper water adjacent. As far as tackle is concerned the true faithful for years has been buck tails as large as they make for casting and suicks for trolling.
