Ed Been coming since 2000. Advid Pike and Muskie fisherman. I really enjoy my fishing trips to West Nipissing Resort. I always catch lots of fish. Of course some days are better than others but I've never come back from a day on the water skunked! That's how Ian can offer his guarantee. There is just lots of fish there period. It is also nice to have an owner who has taken time out of his busy day to join me on the water. Guaranteed Fish at West Nipissing Resort, I'll back that up 100%
Drew and Jill Been coming since 1998 Advid Pike and Small Mouth fisherpeople
We started going to West Nipissing Resort before Ian and Lillian bought the place. The boat rentals are 2nd to none and the cottages are everything you need and more. The fishing gets better every year we go up as our knowledge of the lake increases. The Small Mouths we've caught have been anywhere between 3.5 - 6 LBS. These fish are big, healthy, plentiful and fun to catch. The Pike fishing is absolutely fabulous when the bite is on and taste great too. It's nice to have the owner take the time and teach you how to remove the "Y" bones from the Pike. It's quite an art and Ian has it down to a science. Guaranteed Fish at West Nipissing Resort? For sure, but the numbers, species and size are up to you.
Lou Been coming since 2000 Advid Fisherman
I go fishing with my family every year at West Nipissing Resort. Last year I caught my Muskie. Beautiful! 10 minutes into my holiday and BAM I have him. What a fight it was. I got to brag about it all week. Absolutely a fish for a lifetime. I know why Ian can guarantee fish. I've been there and I agree with him. I say " If you don't catch fish at West Nipissing Resort than you better trade in the fishing tackle and take up knitting because you just don't have it"!
Joe Kvortek Been coming since 2001 Muskie and Pike
I go up with my brothers to West Nipissing Resort. The fishing is good and the Muskie are big. I'll never forget one year we went all the way over to the French River by boat (60 minutes). Ian was puzzled and said we were crazy because the fishing is just as good or better 10 minutes from camp. He showed us where on the map too. Being stubborn we went anyway. We caught fish but nothing like the 50 + inch 40 + LB Muskie we caught just 7 minutes from camp last year. You know, it was right where Ian said it would be. I told you so he said. He was right. Hard to accept, being a stubborn fisherman like myself but he knows his water. Our Muskie proves it! A Fish Guarantee from Ian. You can take that to the bank!
