Magnet Fishing

Magnet fishing became a trend and was tried by many in some of the countries. It has also become a hobby that everybody enjoys because it is like the common type of fishing in a pond or river. The only difference is at the end of the fishing rope.

There is a special magnet called neodymium magnet, which is one of the most widely used magnets. Neodymium magnets are used in many ways, such as motors, hard disk drives, jewelry, etc.

It’s also one of the strongest magnets because they resist demagnetization that has high saturation magnetization.

Magnet fishing is throwing a rope with a magnet in the creeks, ocean or rivers, and pull it back to see if the magnet has obtained treasures.  You can catch large items like motor or auto parts, bicycles, coins, and other rare items in magnet fishing. 

The Benefit Of Magnet Fishing

If you do magnet fishing for the environment, you are helping the environment to clean rivers and seas from the trashes and other stuff that people are dumping off.

Magnet fishing can also benefit underwater creatures because it can remove large pieces or unnecessary items underwater. As you enjoy magnet fishing as a hobby, you also help the planet by cleaning rivers, creeks and ocean, and others.

Safety for Magnet Fishing

If magnet fishing has its benefits, it can also be dangerous for people. Magnet fishing uses neodymium magnets, which are strong enough to pull and carry heavy and large items underwater.

You might catch some stuff that can be very hazardous. Things that neodymium magnets can pull are some kinds of war paraphernalia like grenades and rifles. Magnet fishing is also the same as metal detectors, where objects or items are found using durable metal or magnets.

Magnet Fishing Kit

As a beginner in magnet fishing, you need a rope and neodymium magnets, and gloves.

  • Rope – the rope must be thick and sturdy. It must be at least 50ft in length, which can go deeper into the water. A good nylon paracord is highly recommended for its elasticity, durability, and strength.

  • Neodymium Magnets – it is a special magnet that can pull huge sizes from underwater. When utilizing this kind of magnet, be sure to handle it carefully because it can be a source of injury and damage to other electronics. Be sure also to know the full force of every neodymium magnet to avoid problems.

  • Gloves – when doing magnet fishing, you must wear sturdy gloves to protect the hands for gripping, pulling the rope, and handling rusted and sharp metals.


Magnet fishing is an enjoyable hobby. It only requires inexpensive materials that are quick and easy to set up. Aside from the enjoyment brought by magnet fishing, always bear in mind that if you have discovered explosives devices, immediately report them to the authorities for safety.

In magnet fishing, be environmentally conscious because, as you magnet fish, you also help nature by pulling out some trashes underwater.
