So, paravanes.

A paravane could be a type of underwater glider that is towed  behind a ship, used to cut the cables that tie underwater mines down.  When a paravane cuts these cables the mine rises to the surface where it can be destroyed with gunfire.

But a paravane can also be any towed, winged, underwater object.  This can include fishing lures.
