What strength should my fishing magnet have?

For those new to magnet fishing, a magnet with a pull force of 300kg/660lb is a great starting point. It's potent enough to retrieve metal treasures from the water while being manageable. Seasoned magnet fishers might opt for even stronger magnets. Remember, while single and double-sided magnets have strong pull forces, they're limited to one or two sides. For a comprehensive catch, consider an all-around fishing magnet with 360-degree pulling power.

Which magnet is ideal for magnet fishing?

The best choice is a robust neodymium magnet, crafted from some of the planet's strongest metals. Depending on your preference, you can select from single-sided, double-sided, or all-around 360-degree magnets. Single-sided magnets are classic choices with a strong pull on the bottom. For a broader catch area, the double-sided or the all-around 360-degree magnets are perfect.

How should I go about magnet fishing?

Prepare your magnet fishing gear, ensuring you have a powerful neodymium magnet. Depending on your chosen location, you can either throw or drop your magnet from a bridge or shore. If you're in shallow, muddy waters, a Magnet Fishing Spike will help you position your magnet accurately.

Does the size of the magnet matter in magnet fishing?

While size can be deceiving, it's the pull force that truly matters. High-quality materials can produce a powerful magnet without being overly large. Focus on the pull force that suits your needs rather than the magnet's size.

Is magnet fishing allowed everywhere?

In many countries, magnet fishing is legal. However, always check local regulations before starting. If you're considering private waterways, always get permission. And remember, leave the spot as clean as you found it.

No need! Our magnets, weighing more than 0.55 LB/250g, sink effectively on their own.

I've found something with my magnet. How do I retrieve it?
