Powerful Neodymium Magnet Fishing – All Powerful neodymium magnet fishing magnets have a super reinforced eye bolt mount.
HSMAG had its manufacturing group add a weld to between the eyebolt and the magnet casing to ensure a strong connection that other companies do not have.
A rope as described so that you can retrieve your magnet and pull anything it finds for you up out of the lake bed. I suggest at least 50 feet because some lakes are deeper than you think.
Gloves So that you can scrape the pieces of metal off of the magnet. Some pieces may be very sharp and cut you. This will complete your magnetic fishing set.
This sport may be performed off of the dry land, a pier is ideal or from a canoe. Keep in mind that the more unstable the platform is the less chance you have of pulling in heavy objects safely.
Tricks of the trade:
The eyelets and the flat surfaces of these fishing magnets have a way of getting caught between sticks and rocks in the river or lake. If you tape a plastic bag around the magnet rounding out the edges it cuts your chances of having to cut your magnet away by some measure. Use your judgement in making this decision. Personally I would go with the bag.
If you find what may be described as a debris field under the water you may want to run a pattern of retrievals to the left and right of the initial find to see if a Spanish galleon went down in that creek many many years ago.
We are going magnet fishing tomorrow in Dallas, Tx at a local pond. Most of the lakes in Texas are man made and usually way less than 100 years old. So, I am not sure what we will find but we will have a great time trying and just see what happens.
Video of the HSMAG Team out at the pond in a park which used to have some homes and an old mill on the property years ago.
This video stars Johnathan, our shipping guru. He is going to point out some of the things you need to get started including putting the magnet fishing magnets together and tying them to the rope.
For the fishing magnets rope we used a piece of parachute shroud line that is rated at 550 lbs. Tensile strength.
One thing we forgot is that some of the items pulled from the lake can be sharp. We now suggest a good pair of gloves to remove objects from the magnet. Johnathan did sacrifice some skin (not shown in the video) when he removed the magnet, but he is fine.
There is little skill involved with this sport but we have found it is quite fun and if you do it in a place that has some history (Revolutionary War, Civil War, old industrial factory…) you just might find some good stuff while magnet fishing with your fishing magnet.
