Fish Hawk -
Founded in the early 1970's, Fish Hawk Electronics was one of the first companies to make sonar depth finders. At that time, Pacific salmon were being stocked and taking hold in nearby Lake Michigan. Anglers quickly figured out that these exciting new fish were very sensitive to water temperature, and Fish Hawk introduced their temperature probe. As the Great Lakes salmon fishery developed, downriggers became popular and fishermen learned that underwater currents affected the action of their lures, making a big difference in their catch. Using sonar, Fish Hawk developed a probe that attached to the end of the downrigger cable and told anglers the water temperature and speed at their downrigger ball. The first Fish Hawk Thermo-Troll systems were seen as space age technology at the time, and as the salmon fishery boomed, thousands of anglers put Fish Hawk systems on their boats. The current generation of Fish Hawk products are the result of four-decades of hard-earned fishing experience, combined with modern engineering, components, and precision assembly. Fish Hawk produces the only wireless speed and temp system on the market today, and Fish Hawk Electronics are still proudly-built in the USA.
