The best magnets for magnet fishing.

When it comes to picking your magnet it can be quite hard as there are so many now on the market. Some of these magnets are absolute garbage and are not worth your hard earned cash so it is very important to make sure that you pick one that is recommended. This way you can be sure that you are getting the real deal and a magnet that is up to the job.

The first magnet that I recommend is a double sided neodymium fishing magnet with a huge 1200lb of pulling force. Due to the magnet being double sided it actually has 600lb of force per side which is more than enough for general magnet fishing. It is made by one of the market leaders Brute Magnetics and is a great quality magnet that I highly recommend. If you would like to view the current price of this magnet on Amazon please click the photo below.

The next recommended magnet below is a single sided magnet again made by Brute Magnetics. They really are a great brand who are dedicated to making quality magnets for magnet fishing. It has a good pulling force of 575lb which will lift out some pretty big finds from the murky depths. It is also nearly 3 inches in diameter which means it has a good surface area for hooking up to any metal that comes close. Choosing the single sided magnet over the double sided magnet is a personal choice but this one does come in a little cheaper so may be better if you are looking for a smaller entry price. As always you can click the photo to be taken to Amazon to see the best price available at the minute.

If you would like a much more powerful magnet then the one below is the one you need. It is a very powerful neodymium magnet that will help to pull out almost and object from the water. It is very good quality and as such will last you for a very long time with no need to upgrade in the future. This magnet has a stupendous 1200lb of pulling force all from a single side which is crazy powerful. Mutuacter make great magnets for magnet fishing and you usually get a decent length of rope with it. Please beware that if you are buying this magnet it needs to come with a health warning, very, very powerful! As always the below photo will take you straight to the Amazon listing for the best price.

This last magnet is the perfect entry level budget magnet. If you are looking to get into the hobby but do not want to spend a fortune then this will be the one for you as it is still powerful enough to pull in some huge finds. the total pulling force is 350lb from one side. Again it is by Mutuacter and comes with a length of good quality, strong rope so that you are ready to get magnet fishing.


Strong magnet fishing rope.

You would really struggle magnet fishing without a lenth of decent rope. The rope you use for magnet fishing needs to be very strong as some of the finds can be very heavy.

We recommend using the rope shown below which is made by Wukong. It is an ultra strong braided rope that comes in two sizes. The 8mm version has a breaking strain of 250kg while the 6mm breaks at 150kg. This rope is perfect for your magnet fishing kit with the above magnets. It is light, yet very strong and durable.

Magnet fishing gloves.

Magnet Fishing takes place in some quite mucky water sometimes. Also you never know what you might have stuck to your magnet. In the interests of safety and hygiene you should always wear gloves for magnet fishing.

The below gloves are perfect for the job, they are water resistant and have great grip when dry or wet. They also offer protection from sharp bits of metal. It is highly recommended to wear hand protection when magnet fishing.


Penknife for cutting rope and fishing line.

There are so many situations when magnet fishing that a penknife or multi tool would come in handy. The amount of times that I have got a big knotted rope due to fishing line or other rope is incredible. So I highly recommend the one below which is under the legal size limit and will do everything you need of it.

Grappling hook for magnet fishing.

This might not be an essential bit of magnet fishing equipment but it will save you a load of time and hassle. When pulling in a large object a grappling hook can provide you with extra support and pulling power. Perfect for bringing in finds such as Scooters, bikes and cash boxes!
