Fishing Magnets, also called Magnet fishing, magnetic fishing, is searching in outdoor waters for Ferromagnetic objects available to pull with a strong neodymium magnet.

Magnet fishing is a sport/hobby in which a person throws a strong magnet (typically neodymium) into a water source (generally a river, lake, etc.) with the intent of attracting ferromagnetic materials. This mainly includes iron as well as other materials such as nickel and cobalt. Magnet fishing is quickly becoming a very popular hobby.

The hobby has been adopted by celebrities. The hobby is a combination of environmentalism and treasure hunting. The magnets used are strong enough to remove large debris such as discarded bicycles, guns, safes, bombs, coins and car tire rims from bodies of water, but many who engage in the hobby are hoping to find rare and valuable items as well.

It is thought magnet fishing was initially started by boaters using magnets to recover fallen keys from the water. Today magnet retrieval tools are specially designed to retrieve items that are lost at the bottom of bodies of water. There are two main types of magnets. These are double sided and single sided magnets.

People who engage in the hobby may be referred to as “magnetfishers,” “magneteers,” “MF’ers” or “neodemons,” (a play on neodymium). With the hobby still in its infancy none of the names has taken root yet.

WARNING:

This powerful magnet will temporarily affect television colour, it can trap fingers, wipe and distort tape and video recordings, affect watches, etc.
Attach the interference bar (keeper bar) when not in use and stow at least 2 meters from boat compasses.
While the sea searcher will withstand heavy lifting duties the core is brittle. The magnet should not be dropped on hard surfaces.
When lifting heavy objects from under water, the magnets capacity is even greater until the object reaches the surface.
Be ready to take hold of the object at this point.
Neodymium magnets have a maximum operating temperature of 80 degress C above which their power deteriorates rapidly.

We would not recommend this magnet be used by children under 16 without supervision!
