I tried it ..perhaps about 3 hours total, plan on getting back to it this summer. I didn't find anything of value but learned a few things
I fished off bridges over local creeks, and discovered that they aren't particularly good...reason being, during the summer they get low enough, so if there was anything valuable/visible, it is likely somebody would have spotted it from the bridges, since creeks around her have clear water and usually gravel bottoms..
Probably the best place for the magnets, would be fishing from a concrete dam, which has several feet of water against it at all times.
Canals with clean side and continuous depth, would be good. Also check piers which have sufficient water depth.. people drop all kinds of things off piers and around boats which are tied to piers.
