Unearthing crime material. Good for boredom. Next time I need to go to the DMV, to cut the four hr waiting time I’ll find a location next to a large body of water. Thanks for the tip.22
I don’t but know some that do it.
it’s very restrictive in the UK and personally it’s more hassle than it’s worth.
Also a couple of guys I know where told in no uncertain terms not to magnet fish in a certain area.10
Never done it, but it seems interesting to see what you can find, based on the videos I've seen of it.11
What Girls & Guys Said
I have, but it wasn’t a treasure hunt, it was to locate and retrieve a gun that fell in the water.28
Nah, I don't really need any old shopping trolleys at the moment...11
No, but I have used a small nut on a string guided by a magnet to fish through a finished insulated wall on the job before.11
Not done it myself but I've watched some kids do it in the river cleddau. They didn't get anything interesting but they Seem to be enjoying it10
No but a coworker who has a fishing magnet like that does do it and we've both done it at work trying to get rid of all the loose metal around the property.10
I did as a game an an artificial environment at carnivals or children’s parties but never in a lake where you get to keep the magnets you collect10
In lakes near where i live you can find a bomb of WWI.11
That gun in the collage DEFINITELY has bodies on it😂😂😂20
I voted for the third option. I was wondering what kind of bait do you use to catch a magnet?20
no. because in my countries law, what you find is legally not yours.10
It’s a good idea but it makes you look like a total desperate cheapskate 😂10
if i were to go mag fishing it would be with a neodymium mag.10
I've looked into it just to help clean up the local rivers and lakes... maybe earn some side cash10
Yep only found a hook11
It's an interesting concept though. Good idea11
Yes sir it's not for me11
Not really but you never know what you’ll get12
Haha no but I probably will someday 😅12
Yes I have and didn't find shit11
I used to... as a kid10
I wasn't actually there with them but my brothers did that and retrieved a revolver from a river while camping in southwest. My dad told them to take it to the local Sheriff's Department but they didn't and didn't tell anyone else that they didn't. Years later, while sorting through old stuff, one of my brothers found the gun in our parents' attic where they boxed it and stored it. He gave it to a friend of our's who's a Cop. Apparently, it was used in an accidental shooting incident where nobody died but one got shot and seriously injured. A decades old case was solved but my brothers were charged with obstruction of justice which was dropped because they were just juveniles who simply wanted to keep what they found ("finders keepers rule").
Occasionally, they now take their kids magnet fishing too. Many valuable objects have been retrieved from spots they magnet fished in.
