Anyone here do any magnet fishing? What magnet do you recommend?

Any tips or suggestions for a beginner?

Looking at getting into this, something for me and my oldest son to do together.

What's the sense in working hard if you never get to play?

100’ of cord. Magnet from Lowe’s….maybe a hundred pound pull. That’s what I did.took the kid to a dock and a river where people fish.

There is a number of youtubes on this. Amazon has all kinds of magnets you can read the reviews. I like like using .095 or .105 round trimmer line.

I watch a guy that goes by Bondi Treasure Hunter on facebook and i think also youtube. He is a hoot and really gets after it with some strong magnets.

Think i have watched hours of his magnet fishing videos. 100’ds of bikes, motorcycles, scooters, safes, coins and tons of junk.

My son is a fearless magnet fisherman, trolling the waters around NOLA. So far he has recovered 2 pistols and a safe, as well as all kinds of trash. He get his supplies from Amazon. I fear it is a matter of time before an alligator eats his magnet. And him , too.

So the advice is summed up as "bring enough magnet?" I suspect much of the "catch" is "released" right back in the lake for the next guy to find.
