Brainerd, MN September 18, 2012 – Grayden Outdoor, LLC. announced today it has purchased the assets of the patented and trade-marked Deeper Diver and TripZ Diver product lines originally introduced by Walker Downriggers. The Deeper Diver and TripZ Diver will join Fish Hawk Electronics as part of Grayden Outdoor’s growing line of trolling products.
“The addition of the Deeper Divers and TripZ Divers makes sense for us because we share many of the same customers,” said Trevor Sumption, Grayden’s president. “Initially we’re going to focus on getting everything in-stock. From there we believe we can expand the use of divers in several fisheries, and beyond that we’ve got plans to add new technology to divers in the near future.”
Deeper Divers are directional sinkers available in five sizes that allow trollers to target fish from just below the surface all the way past 120-feet. Deeper Divers get down fast and stay down until tripped. The bottom weight can be adjusted (without a screwdriver) allowing the angler to select how far to the port or starboard side they want the Deeper Diver to run. They are offered both in fish-attracting colors and stealth finishes like clear and black, and are staple for catching Great Lakes salmon, trout, and walleye.
The buoyant TripZ Diver features the same trip-release mechanism found on the Deeper Diver, which allows anglers to fight the fish instead of the diver. It has been a fish-catching hit on Lake Erie when fished under planer boards for walleyes, and today is an under-utilized tool in a variety of other trolling situations. Available in sizes that reach 20, 30, 40, and 50-feet respectively, TripZ Divers will be offered in seven proven- effective color patterns, plus they have an internal rattle that attracts fish and helps them dive more quickly.
Launching later this fall, the new website—trollingdivers.com—will be a resource for anglers looking for more information on fishing with divers, including expanded dive charts, rigging tips, and detailed information from top charter captains and tournament fishermen from around the Great Lakes and other fisheries.
