It is with great pleasure to announce the appointment of Kyla and Glenn McDonald of Vermilion Bay ON CAN to the PDeez pro staff team!
This is definitely one of my proudest moments since the inception of PDeez Musky Inlines because of my deep rooted history in the Vermilion Bay area.
Our story goes,
Growing up in Northwestern Ontario, one naturally learns to fish early on. This was no different for Glenn and Kyla McDonald. With a love of fishing, and the outdoors bringing them together in 2008, they’ve never looked back.
Kyla’s father Harry and brothers, Jeff and Ryan are avid and accomplished musky fisherman. They brought the early passion of hunting musky to Glenn and Kyla. Fishing the hallowed waters on Long Legged/Stork Lake, and eventually guiding on the same water, their passion grew.
Living in quiet Vermilion Bay, Ontario on the shores of world renowned Eagle Lake, with world class musky lakes in every direction, there’s no shortage of water to keep them busy.
Kyla is manager of Bobby’s Sport Shop, and directly works with all the suppliers to stay on top of the newest trends in gear and tackle. The pair work behind the scenes, and occasionally on camera with TV personalities and print media. Glenn and Kyla recently started Buck-Tails Hunting and Fishing guide service and work with area camps to guide whenever possible to help promote all the local camps and businesses.
A chance phone call with me in late 2016 led to the introduction of the LLL TORPEDO in the spring of 2017 and the newest collaboration is the brand new KM Series of baits just recently launched. After spending the entire 2017 musky season running PDeez exclusively plus field testing the KM prototypes and the exclusive to only Bobby's Sport Shop triple bladed TORNADO, Kyla and Glenn have made a commitment to PDeez . While the pair is already connected with other companies in the musky industry this will solidify PDeez with Kyla and Glenn within the musky community, especially in the Northwestern Ontario region.
Looking forward to a bright future together, Kyla and Glenn hope to work alongside PDeez by bringing new anglers into musky fishing, developing easier to use baits for younger and older anglers plus refining proven baits for the hard-core enthusiast. The pursuit of muskies will never end!
Kyla and Glenn, everyone at PDeez is honoured to have you join our team!
Welcome to the family!
If anyone is interested in contacting either Kyla or Glenn for either guided musky hunts, product availability at Bobby's Sport Shop or any other reason, they can both be reached at the following coordinates:
Pro staffer Glenn McDonald at Clarkes Northern Lights Resort on Cedar Lake in Northwestern Ontario bags a 50.25 on his 2nd cast to start the day. Gave his girls in the boat and the people on the dock a good show! She ate a custom pattern LSG MISSILE.
The long awaited KM SERIES are now available for purchase.
Why "KM" you ask?
Back in early spring of 2017, good friend Glenn McDonald asked me if I had any plans to introduce any fluted Indiana blade baits and I replied, " why yes, just so happens I have something in the works." Why do you ask? Glenn responded, "Well Paul, as you know my wife Kyla has working very hard these past number of years running the infamous Bobby's Sport Shop, raising our family, hardcore musky hunting and guiding to the point where the people at St. Croix Rods recognized her hard work and dedication to the sport of fishing that she became the 2nd ever female angler to become a St. Croix pro staffer. She also has mentioned many times her love of fluted Indiana bucktails. I would love to find someone to develop a unique series of fluted inlines with her name on them as a big thank you for everything she has done for fishing, me and the girls!"
I immediately responded, "I'm that person!" The next few months we secretly plotted the creation of these unique new baits behind Kyla's back. She had no idea until Glenn unveiled the prototypes I had sent them to field test.
The KM SERIES was born!
Pictured here is Kyla's first ever KM fish. What a great introduction to an amazing new, easy to use bait!
KM ATTITUDE - dbl fluted mag 8 Indiana blade bait for use anytime of the year.
KM KRUSH - single fluted mag 8 Indiana blade bait for those hard to get muskies, before, during and after cold front conditions.
Kyla McDonald, everyone at PDeez would like to recognize your hard work and dedication the sport of fishing, the amazing job you do at Bobby's and at home by placing your name on these amazing new easy to use baits! Congratulations!
Due to Glenn McDonald's thoughtfulness we would like to nominate him for the husband of the year award!
Inspired by "Long Legged Lake" musky hunters Glenn and Kyla McDonald of the infamous Bobby's Sport Shop in Vermilion Bay Ontario, Canada. Specifically designed for early season musky in the cooler waters of North West Ontario and all avid musky/northern pike anglers everywhere!
We are proud to announce our latest pro staff appointee:
Jonathan has been fishing ever since he was two years of age and developed an extreme passion for it. Over the past twenty years he has become a very accomplished multi-species angler with a severe addiction to musky hunting! As a prominent angler and guide in and around the Montreal area he has been accredited with more than 1000 muskies in the boat for himself and guests with at least 200 over that magic 50" mark. However, the hunt never stops in the hopes of shattering his clients and own personal bests.
Jonathan is a huge proponent of catch and release of all species and educates his friends and guests to ensure survival of the resource for generations to come. As a guide he has had the opportunity to participate in several Quebec television shows such as Chassomaniak and Quebec Vacances Nature, along with informational videos for the Federation Quebecoises des Chasseurs et Pecheurs.
Jonathan is a proud pro staffer for Fray n' Release, St. Croix Rods and is now the laest addition to the PDeez pro staff family!
Jonathan, welcome to the team! Everyone at PDeez Musky Inlines is honoured to have you. Thank you!
Christopher Land from Minnesota decided to spend part of this past July's full moon phase at Mooosehorn Lodge hunting Lac Seul with good friend and guide extraordinaire Ben Beattie. Best decision ever!
You see, not only did Chris enter the 50+ club once during his 4 days of Lac Seul musky madness, he did it twice with an almost identical twin with the same new DOWNSIZER HD which took 7 of the 10 muskies boated throughout the trip! WOW!
The first ever fish that ate one of our NEW black mamba series of baits happens to be this amazing looking, first ever, 46" LEUCISTIC/ALBINO musky on a PDeez caught and released by our good friend Derek Seguin!
Congratulations Derek on this extraordinary catch!
