Magnet Fishing

by Pete Fitzgetald January. 06, 2019 284 views

Yes I said magnet, My 2 partners in crime Matt and Craig and I were having coffee one day we were talking about magnets and the next thing you know, flash forward a week later and the 3 of us are armed with 400 pound pulling power magnets and heavy duty cord. We decide to go down to a creek and see what we can catch.

An old water sawmill was on this site in the 1940's, we found some old hooks and pistons and other small stuff, it was a fun afternoon, but I was glad to get back and get dry. We 3 always seem to come up with something interesting to do.

I've always been a hunter, even as a child. 
At 73, I'm still hunting, but mostly for cool images now...
and a lot less messy than cleaning a deer, rabbit or fish........(grin)....

You sure know how to have fun and I am not saying that sarcastically. Very cool idea.  I did have to look up the magnet on Amazon, never seen one before. I guess it's cheaper than those wands people use at the shorelines.

Never know what kind of treasures or mysteries that you can discover lurking in the waters.
