Magnet Fishing Anyone?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of it?  Anyone actually do it?  I've got a 250kg magnet that I use during the Spring / Summer months.  

We've managed to pull out old bikes, some safe's (with pennies in), bike parts.... no weapons yet bar a mini meat cleaver.

It's a lot of fun and the kids enjoy it too.  People often come up to you and ask what it is you are doing, so a good way of being social.

Video for your reference....

I used to do magnet fishing, too. I still have a 600-kilo magnet. Also went with a metal detector. Found a lot of stuff. Gave up those hobbies because of health issues. Now I got better, but not enough time to go out into nature to leave the magnet)

Nice, @Oracleas. How'd you find metal detecting? 

I'd get one myself - were I to live next to a beach or something. Rules around metal detecting can be quite restrictive.

Pleased to hear you feel better.
