SUPPORTING OUR TEAM AND CUSTOMERS DURING THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK - We are operating business as usual and want to assure our customers that we are taking all precautionary actions and measures to ensure our team and customers are safe during this time.

PICK YOUR LOCATION

When it comes to magnet fishing, you can cast your magnet and rope safety into most bodies of water. From a pier, bridge or boat on the open water, drop your magnet into the unknown and see what you discover.

LAKES
CANALS
RIVERS

OUR TOP LOCATION TIPS:

  • To find something worthwhile, pick a spot people use.
  • Pick a location with a good water depth. Deep waters offer more mystery.
  • Locations with bridges create a great, safe cast-off spot.
  • Pick a location that is safe and not near fast flowing currents.
  • Watch out for local wildlife.

SAFETY WARNING

Always ensure that is is safe to fish in your selected location. Consider the water's depth and current be sure of your surroundings. Do not put yourself in danger and always tell someone when you are going to magnet fish. Ensure you have permission in your chosen location. Read the magnet warning sheet before handling.

THINGS TO FIND

Beneath the surface of the water lies the unknown and you could be on the verge of unearthing a hidden treasure. You’re certain to find old scrap metal and fish hooks but people in the past have discovered historic coins, firearms and WWII artefacts! What will you find? Other people use magnetic fishing to help retrieve tools that have fallen into the water. With a rope length of 10 metres, you stand a strong chance of retrieving your equipment.

BIKE FRAMES

COINS

Count your findings and make a little profit. Find old or foreign currencies and start a collection.

EQUIPMENT

You will not require a rod, various baits, a line or nets; magnet fishing only requires 3 simple tools. We do, however, recommend a thick pair of gloves for handling your findings.

Pot Magnet

Pot Magnet

Pot magnets have a strong clamping force with a thin connection and allow you to attract to and hold large objects with a smaller magnet face.

Eyebolt

Eyebolt

Screw your eyebolt into the magnet and thread your rope through the hole and tie sufficiently. See below our knot recommendations.

Rope

Rope

Ensure you have a strong rope with a great breaking strength. Weaker ropes may snap when you are retracting the rope, magnet and ferrous material.

FIXINGS

How to tie your rope to the magnet when magnet fishing?
When tying your rope to the magnet, ensure the knot is strong and secure. Your magnet will attract to ferrous materials beneath the water and a secure line is pivotal for retrieving the magnet and your find. Here are some knots we recommend:

Double Davy

Double Davy 

A secure knot that can be tied quickly and easily. Works great with a thin rope.

Taut-Line Hitch

Taut-Line Hitch 

A strong knot that gets tighter as you retract the rope from the water.

Perfection Knot

Perfection Knot

Often referred to as the Angler’s Loop, this knot creates a ring for your eyebolt.
