Default Anybody here into magnet fishing?

I guess magnet fishing is relatively new to the states, but has been going on in Europe for some years. I plan on doing some metal detecting and magnet fishing this coming summer, having ordered a new detector and this new magnet combo;

If you're not familiar with magnet fishing, check for it on YouTube..

I tried if a couple times off bridges over a canal near me. Hauled up a rusty old bicycle, but was hoping for a gun.

Folks do find some useful things with magnets.

I would like to try it, but I can't get near a magnet that strong or it will turn off my defibrillator.

Oh yes..I think that would be dangerous. I don't plan on mixing that 350# magnet anywhere near my detector or computers.

Hmm...I wonder if somebody got aboard a "driverless car" with a 1000# magnet ?

Old thread but I wanted to ask the same question as the title. IG, did you give it a try? Anybody see a detriment with the 1200 lb models?

Re-purposed magnet mount antenna base? Some of them are pretty stout.

There’s a creek that parallel’s a section of the abandoned Richmond Danville railway. (Used extensively back in the 1860’s). Thinking I could loose a bunch of magnets there. LOL

I've got an old antenna base magnet, and have been kicking around trying some old well locations I know about in the woods.

I always thought it would be fun to do this. Then I realized that anything that has been in the water for much more then a few weeks is basically worthless. Unless you're just looking for scrape metal. According to my wife I have enough junk laying around the house, I don't need any more.

Those would be great spots! I’ve been metal detecting at my place. Found some wagon and harness tack and a 1862 chainsaw part. 😄
