Melines Lodge And Guide Service

Looking to experience total escapism alongside some first-class angling? The vast and beautiful Lake of the Woods is calling your name! When you join Melines Lodge And Guide Service, you’ll get to cruise these waters and tangle lines with anything from huge Musky, to Walleye, Bass species, and plenty more. Even better, you’ll retreat to a stunning lakeside lodge afterwards, where you’ll rest up for your next day of angling action!

Melines Lodge, located in Nestor Falls, ON, has been in business since 2006, when lifelong fishing fanatic Captain Dean Roy decided to turn his years of experience into a charter company. After over 20 years of exploring Lake of the Woods, Capt. Dean is still blown away by everything it has to offer, and the diverse species that call it home. His lodge is the perfect place to explore and experience these breathtaking waters from, whether you’re an experienced angler or total newbie.

You’ll start off your adventure on a 21’ Crestliner, built to explore the vast waters of the lake. She can accommodate up to 4 guests, making her the perfect size for a family trip, or indulging in friendly competition with your best angling pals. Decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear, you’ll have a comfortable journey to the hotspots. There’s plenty of room on board to battle hard-fighting Walleye, or hook Largemouth Bass, Lake Trout, Perch, Pike, and more.

Capt. Dean offers multi-day trips for anglers who want to totally immerse themselves in this incredible wilderness, and shorter day trips are available, too. If you opt for a multi-day trip, you’ll be treated to an all-inclusive stay at your captain’s beautiful lakeside lodge, equipped with comfortable bedrooms, home-cooked meals, private toilets, and more. This lodge is the perfect place to relax after an action-packed day of angling!

Your trip includes all the necessary fishing gear – just bring a fishing license, and get ready to escape into an incredible angling adventure!



About the Captain

Response time 16 hours
Member since February 2019
Capt. Dean fell in love with fishing as a child, and now owns his very own charter and lodging company in beautiful Nestor Falls. He decided to turn his passion for angling into a career at the age of 14, when he went to a fair and saw a stand for a Great Bear Lake guiding charter. He got hired when he was 15 to help out, and building his angling career has been an adventure and a dream come true for him ever since! Capt. Dean has now fished all around Canada, especially the northern parts, and has never missed a summer of fishing for over 42 years. He’s been fishing Lake of the Woods for over 22 years, and fell in love with it because of the long season, and the “never-ending mess of it”! He also loves that the lake is brimming with Muskies, and that there's always something new to discover here – every trip to the lake is an adventure. He’s incredibly dedicated to customer service, too, and will do all he can to make sure you have the fishing and lodging experience of a lifetime.
