You need a very strong magnet for magnet fishing. It is best to get the strongest magnet you can carry and tie securely to a rope. Keep in mind that the magnet’s pull force will be at its maximum when the metal object is fully flat against it. During magnet fishing however, a flat contact would be difficult to achieve as objects that have been sitting at the bottom of a lake for a long time tend to accumulate debris (soil, vegetation, rust, algae etc.), and the metal object itself may not be flat – this is why getting a much stronger magnet is advisable to compensate for these irregularities. Remember also that the bigger finds will need a stronger magnet to be pulled out of their longtime resting place, dragged through, and out of the water.
In addition to a strong magnet, you will need a good rope as your line. We recommend to get a rope that is at least 50ft in length which would be long enough for shallow water and for fishing in most places. If you know for sure that where you want to fish is very deep, or you want to be able to cast your line far from the water’s edge, then you can use a 100ft rope. When fishing from bridges, then definitely use a 100ft rope.
Those are the main methods to be aware of. The hopping method works anywhere you’ll be fishing straight down, such as bridges and piers. If fishing out in canals or rivers, it won’t be practical, and drags will really be your only option. If you drag, do it slowly so you’ll feel when there is extra weight. Also, if you pull too quickly, you may keep the magnet off the bottom. Now for some odds and ends advice:

Fish themselves are not magnetic (unless there is some weird breed lurking at the bottom of the sea somewhere) but it has been known for fishermen to attach magnets to their line, but this is not the same thing that we are talking about here. Our hobby involves the use of a strong magnet attached to a reliable rope in order to retrieve magnet items from the bottom of canals and lakes.

This Neodymium Fishing Magnets is made of a super strong neodymium magnet encased inside a chrome plated steel cup. The neodymium magnet is bonded inside of the cup with adhesives. At the same time, the steel cup also protects the magnet from being damaged when frequently used. The eyebolt is provided for easy application but you can remove it and make and install your own hooks or eyebolts.

Sharks are having a rough go of it. It’s estimated that humans kill 100 million sharks of all species each year, many hunted for shark-fin soup while others are killed as bycatch when fishermen accidentally hook or trap them. While there’s a lot of work to be done to save sharks, Ben Millington at the Australian Broadcasting Network reports that researchers have come up with a simple and cheap strategy for preventing some shark bycatch: outfitting fish traps with magnets.
This magnet is very strong. If you place it in the center of most metal parts it will take a strong hand to pry it free. I'm using a small pipe through the eyelet, you have to use leverage to break this magnet free. I lifted a 30lb plate with it, I am sure it will go heavier but that's not safe. I have had magnets that look just like this but they would only hold 5 lbs. This is the real deal!

My new addition to my fishing excursions is great. I have found lots of stuff all ready. I have found that if i drag it behind my boat it will make a loud sound when i have caught something. the magnet wont let go when bringing it up ether. i am realy enjoying using it.. i will recommend it to anyone who has the need to explore finding lost under water treasures.
I saw a video of people 'magnet fishing' on YouTube and thought "why haven't I heard of this before now?" So I had to try it. I read all of the reviews on Amazon about 'Fishing magnets' and this one had the highest review. Boy are they right! Be very careful where you let this magnet come in contact with metal. It took a strong rope and all of my energy to get this thing off of my tool chest. I haven't found anything collectable yet but I won't have to buy and teaspoons for some time. Who throws teaspoons off of bridges? I was expecting weapons. Teaspoons????
