magnet fishing
 
Its getting very popular around the world. Lots of stars on U Tube. I have a magnet I use when I drop a tool while working on my boat on the lift. All my neighbours borrow it when they drop something. But Im gona order a serious "brute" magnet with 800 pounds lift force.

You should see some of the views these guys are getting on youtube. Crazy the crap they bring up. It's not for me but certainly is interesting.

I bought 2 magnets and tried magnet fishing at local boat ramps. I brought up some.....worthless crap! Various hooks, a rusted metal stringer, part of a trailer fender, various chunks of metal.....nothing but junk. I walked down a fishing pier both sides and brought up an old lawn chair, a gun barrel, a rusty knife, some bolts.....just more junk. This pier is heavily used so I expected to find a lot of stuff but that wasn't the case.

A couple of the problems with these magnets.....they bring up a ton of granular metal pieces that are a pain to clean off of the magnet and make a mess, when you connect with a dense piece of metal it can be really hard to get the magnet off of it. A couple of times the magnet attached to part of the pier underwater and I had a hard time trying to get it off without taking a header off of the other side of the dock.

Out of 4 magnet fishing trips I netted......not a dang thing! Maybe I'm not going to the right places to magnet hunt?

The feds will be after you for having unregistered handguns and machine guns....

Cover the magnet in thin plastic or place it in a bag, keeps the magnet clean

bridges too as people thow guns off of those places that have been used in crimes.

those guns may be interesting finds, but are usless pieces of junk

What you need to find a gold magnet

I don't care about finding guns, they are just worthless junk to me. I was more curious about what I could find, if I happened to find anything of value that would just be a bonus.

williamwallus 02-10-2019 12:38 PM

found a bunch of old guns and junk... trip to the garbage can...


not for me

It works to keep kids occupied for a while but other than that its kind of pointless.

Uncas 02-10-2019 12:55 PM

Fishing for unexploded ordnance might prove to be right interestin'.....

I have a smaller 330 lb pull strength magnet that I just received on Friday. I am anxious to try it out on the 13,000 acre lake I normally fish. It was flooded in 1972 for a nuclear power plant and I am thinking there might be some interesting things down there. If anything good comes up, I might get a higher strength magnet.

I think if you can go magnet fishing in an Eastern European bog near Kursk, it will be cool (if you don't blow yourself up).

Here is the US - not so much.

We need pictures. You will need ten posts on here before you can post pics.

A dude near Ocala magnet fished an old pineapple grenade out the Ocklawaha a couple of weeks ago.
