I cant believe I have never heard of this or thought of it before but a guy I know was telling me about it and how he has filled a couple tackle boxes with lures by doing it. I went on amazon and bought a 330 pound pulling force magnet for 15.99, I just tried it out and found a few lures and a bunch of hooks. I am going to a popular river tomorrow that people float and fish and going on a 13 mile trip, I will be taking this for sure! Has anyone here done this and if so have you found anything cool? This is the one I bought, well worth the cheap price in my brief use so far

I tried it when I lost the handle screw to my favorite reel off a dock. Sadly I pulled nothing up.

As for fishing for lures, wouldn't most of it be in nasty condition or hooked into a log? I'd rather enjoy my float or fish for fish rather than lures.

Last comment, I once caught a fish with a lure in its lip. Years later I was using the found lure while fishing with my brother and found out it was his. He had his line snap on a fish and lost it the same year I found it in a private pond. Pretty damn funny.

How hard is it to remove them from the magnet?
Also what if it gets stuck to a big piece of metal at the bottom? Is the rope Stronghold enough to pull it back with 350 pounds of force

What happens if you hook something you can't pull up like a car?

Post what you find though, this is the first I've ever heard of magnet fishing.

What I have never figured out is how magnets work.

Thank you for this. I had no idea what you were referring to, so I googled icp and magnets. I've seen it, now I can't unsee it.
