Default trolling aid for walleye

Is there a trolling aid which goes half way up your line thats called a sled. Works similar to a snap weight only when a fish strikes the sled release's and travels down to your bait.

Thanks for your input.

Yes there is, we use them out in Lake Superior. I cannot remember what they are called but they just clip to your line and when a fish hits and you set the hook, they will release and slide down the line. You can get them in different sizes.

Check Offshore Tackle's website. They have a product called a resettable diving weight that may be what you have in mind.

Not sure-but! On Michigan we use an item called a Slide Diver. Similar to a Dipsey Diver except your line runs through the slide diver so your leader length is adjustable. When a fish hits it releases and slides down to a barrel swivel in front of your lure so the diver does not hit the lure or fish. The release tension is also adjustable. They work great and have replaced all our dipseys.

Looks like 2 totally different concepts to me. Would anyone weigh in on the benefits of one over thee other? I'm guessing the diver would get deeper with less line out, any other considerations?
