    Concerning those "swimming lessons?" Excellent advice.

    See, I fish. And I'm 1/4 Italian with a surname that proves it. I give 'swim with the fishes lessons'! 8)

    Re: A Newb Tequnique: Dragging a Magnet

    want the best rope for this?? go to army/navy store and parachute cord, it's tough and will stretch a little.
    you get 100 ft. for $10.00. if you think you need something stronger, simply double it. have fun.

    You should! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. We were constantly amazed using grapnels and magnets. I still wonder how some of the stuff we found got where it was in the water

    A great place to use it is around boat ramps, people always drop tools, and such there...Have pulled out some neat stuff over the years...I want to put 3 of the large mags side by side, and use that this next summer..That will be my winter project.....What is a grapnel??

    Re: A Newb Tequnique: Dragging a Magnet

    This is a great thread--I have had this idea since I was a kid and just never followed through--has anyone tried it from a boat--I have a small aluminum 14-footer I could use--just trolling around, getting farther out and deeper than just around docks. Anyone do that and find anything worthwhile?

    Re: A Newb Tequnique: Dragging a Magnet

    When someone goes missing around water, grapnel's are used to drag for a body.
    Also used to get a bite while climbing up a ships hull or wall etc.

    Metal detecting with a magnet where your MD is banned

    Last year I lost my folding anchor from my kayak. I just happened to have my Harbor Freight magnet in the truck and used it to "fish" for and find the anchor.

    While reading this thread, it struck me that places such as state parks are other areas with water that ban MDing can be skirted somewhat by magnet fishing from the docks and boat ramps. I figure that is one way we can beat them and still enjoy our hobby of finding things. --Be careful, however, you just may pull out a Merc...not a dime, but a Mercury outboard motor!

    Re: A Newb Tequnique: Dragging a Magnet

    I HAD MY HANDS ON THE MOST POWERFUL MAGNET THAT I HAVE EVER HANDLED, A FEW
    YEARS AGO (WHEN I WAS STILL WORKING). IT PROBABLY WEIGHED 8 TO 10 POUNDS.

    I KEPT IT ON MY METAL WORK BENCH AND FOLKS WOULD WALK BY AND THINK THAT IT
    WAS A MOTOR SHAFT OR A PIECE OF PIPE, AND TRY TO PICK IT UP. THEY ALL FAILED
    AND WANTED TO KNOW HOW I HAD IT MOUNTED. I WOULD WAIT TILL THEY WERE NOT LOOKING AND ROLL IT TO THE EDGE AND TURN IT 90 DEGREES, AND SLIDE IT OFF OF
    THE EDGE WITH A QUICK JERK. AND HAND IT TO THEM. THE FIRST THING THAT WOULD
    HAPPEN WAS IT WOULD GO STRAIGHT TO THE POCKET AND ATTATCH IT'S SELF TO ANY POCKET KNIFE OR SMALL TOOL, OR SOMETIMES IT WOULD GET THEIR BELT BUCKLE.

    ONCE ATTATCHED, IT WAS A BATTLE TO GET IT LOOSE.

    I LOST TRACK OF HOW MANY GATE/DOOR CARDS I WENT THRU AND CREDIT CARDS.
    THAT THING WOULD WIPE OUT ANY CARD WITHIN A FOOT OF IT. (POCKET KNIFE TO
    WALLET DISTANCE = LESS THAN A FOOT. NOBODY WANTED TO PICK IT UP AFTER ABOUT
    6 MONTHS. I GUESS WORD GOT AROUND ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO USE THEIR
    GATE PASS CARD TO GET INTO THE SHOP.

    I MAY GO BACK AND SEE IF THEY STILL HAVE IT..... NOT SURE IF I CAN GET IT OUT OF
    MY TRUCK IN ORDER TO USE IT FOR FISHING..
