Fishing magnet: the best tool for protecting the environment and exploring

In recent years, magnet fishing has gradually become a popular activity. When using a fishing magnet, the user attaches the magnet to a rope and then places it in the water. The magnet will attract ferromagnetic objects on the riverbed or lake bottom. After the magnet adheres to the object, the user can pull the magnet and attached object out of the water with the rope. This process is similar to traditional fishing, but instead of catching fish, it is catching metal objects.

Magnet fishing is quite popular among environmentalists and treasure hunters, as it can be both an interesting outdoor activity and help clean up garbage and waste underwater, which has a positive impact on the environment. However, safety should also be taken into account when using fishing magnets, as there may be dangerous items underwater, such as guns, bombs, and knives, which must be handled with caution.

1.Components of fishing magnet

Choosing a suitable magnet as the core component is the key to creating an excellent fishing magnet product. This magnet should not only have strong magnetic force, but also meet the requirements of being lightweight and compact. Among many permanent magnets, neodymium magnets have become the preferred material for fishing magnet manufacturing due to their excellent performance and relatively low cost.

Depending on your performance needs and budget, you can choose different performance neodymium magnets. The N52 grade neodymium magnet is the strongest magnet you can buy, but better performance also means higher prices. Neodymium magnets are usually coated with protective layers, such as nickel, to improve their durability and corrosion resistance, which is particularly useful in humid environments. The coating also helps prevent the magnet from breaking.

The casing of fishing magnets is usually made of corrosion-resistant alloy materials, such as stainless steel. These materials not only resist the erosion of the underwater environment, but also withstand the external impact that may be encountered during operation. The design of the casing aims to protect the internal neodymium magnets, while also considering weight and portability.

The fishing magnet’s rope is usually made of wear-resistant and tensile materials to ensure it can withstand pulling and friction during fishing.  Common materials include nylon and polyester. If you need to lift very heavy objects, you may also consider using steel wire rope or carbon fiber rope.It is recommended to use a rope at least 50 feet, as their is suitable for use in most places.

The fishing magnet is equipped with fixing rings and hooks, which are located on the casing and rope of the magnet ensure its stability during use. When encountering situations where heavier objects need to be lifted, these rings and hooks can also be easily connected to a crane to enhance the load-bearing capacity.

2.Types of fishing magnets

①single-side magnets

The characteristic of this type of magnet is that their magnetic force is concentrated at the bottom. When using a single-sided fishing magnet,the best technique is to place the magnet vertically in the water and then directly pull it up. Due to the concentration of magnets force on one side, a single-sided fishing magnets mag flip or lie on its side when dragged, which can affect the effectiveness.

The advantage of single-sided fishing magnets is that they provide high pulling force, making them particularly suitable for situations where strong pulling force is required to lift heavy objects. Due to the concentration of magnetic force, they are very effective in searching for specific areas.

However, their disadvantage is that they are less efficient when searching large areas, as they require repeatedly moving the magnet up and down at the same location to cover more areas.

Single-sided neodymium magnets are also generally smaller and lighter than double-sided neodymium magnets, making them easier to carry and transport.

②Double-sided magnet

Unlike single-sided magnets,double-sided magnets cam attract ferromagnetic objects from both sides, providing greater flexibility and efficiency when retrieving items from water.

The double-sided fishing magnet is more suitable for steep slops and faster currents. The side-mounted eyebolt makes this magnet ideal for dragging at the bottom of the water body.

③Clamp magnets

Clamp-type fishing magnets are mainly composed of a large neodymium magnet and are secured with a strong casing. This is different from double-sided magnets, which are composed of two thin magnets secured within a steel casing. Because clamp-type magnets are composed of a single piece of magnet, they can produce stronger magnetic fields than common double-sided magnets.Due to the need for more magnetic materials to manufacture it, it is generally more expensive than other types of magnets.

④360 magnets

360 fishing magnets are one of the most popular types, as they can attract ferromagnetic objects from any angle. They consist of a large neodymium magnet encased in a casing. For those who want to engage in long-term magnet fishing, it is a good choice. The 360 fishing magnet is a universal magnet suitable for various water environments.
