Magnet Fishing

Magnet fishing is a searching in outdoor waters for metal magnetic objects available to pull with a strong magnet.[1]

The hope is that something valuable will surface, but often miscellaneous items like bottle caps and keys are found. Magnet retrieval tools are specially designed to retrieve items that are lost at the bottom of bodies of water.[2]

Pure gold cannot be detected by these magnets, however most coins contain various metals which can be attracted by these magnets.

Most 'Magnateers' observe Landowners, Local Authority regulations concerning outdoor waters, and will seek permissions where appropriate.[]
