Where do you find the most active magnet fishers?
1. The Netherlands
Magnet fishing has been around for a while. In 2012 it started as a hype, but the hobby still remains popular. Each summer the number of visitors on our website skyrockets again. Magnet fishing is still very popular in the Netherlands. On Facebook there is a very large group with Dutch magnet fishers. Locations frequented by magnet fishers: Groningen, Friesland, Gouda, Den Helder and the province Brabant.
In Belgium the number of magnet fishers also starts to grow. There has been a steady rise since 2014. Belgium is also an excellent country for this hobby, with its many large cities, plenty of waterways and the Polders region where fierce battling took place. These are the most popular regions: Ghent and Antwerp. Belgian magnet fishers also have a nice Facebook group.
When we take a look at Europe we also see that interest in magnet fishing has increased during the last few years.
In the summer of 2015 there was a large rise in the number of searches for magnet fishing. This means magnet fishing also gains more popularity here. On Facebook there are wonderful stories of magnet fishers who pulled up beautiful finds out of the water. These are not only bikes or coins, but often old finds that have been lying in the water for several hundreds of years. We found ten countries that have large groups of active magnet fishers: Norway, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Scotland, Germany, France, Slovakia, Sweden, Denmark and Poland.
Big countries outside of Europe also show interest in magnet fishing. In Australia, Canada, the US and Russia people practise this wonderful hobby. The hobby is relatively new here but we think magnet fishing will grow to be a sport with worldwide recognition. As it is such an amazing way to spend free time!

A magnet fisher’s DNA
I have had so many people come by. And have send a fishing magnet to so many people. But I would like to know who the average magnet fisher is. I did some research on the internet and on my webshop. These are the most important results.
A magnet fisher’s interests
- War (highly interested, especially in the first and second WW)
- History (i.e. prehistoric times and Middle Ages)
- Metall detector/metall detection
- Treasures (magnet fishers are keen treasure hunters, i.e. silver and gold)
- Nature (flora and fauna, but also beautiful landscapes)
Magnet fishers also love nature. In fact, magnet fishing can be seen as a ecological hobby. Rivers, lakes, wells or canals are cleaned by magnet fishers who dredge the bottom in search of nice iron finds that are corroding the water and pollute it.
A magnet fisher’s age
Mostly men and youngsters between the age of 16 and 65. But in recent years also more and more young magnet fishers of 12 till 15 years. They are often accompanied by their fathers. Magnet fishing is an incredibly fun occupation and will certainly enforce the bond between father and son.
Magnet fishers also like to fish in groups. They like to boast with their finds and don’t like giving any information on their locations. On Facebook you can find a lot of different groups with beautiful findings. A lot of magnet fishers are also searching for a magnet fishing buddy.
Are you currently looking for a fellow magnet fisher? Then you should take a look at one of these groups.

We sell a large amount of fishing magnets from our wide collection. We know that a lot of grandparents and fathers want to buy a fishing magnet for their (grand)daughter or (grand)son. So that is why we would like to highlight our 55 kg fishing magnet. It is the perfect children’s fishing magnet.
This children’s fishing magnet looks small and cute
The 55 kg fishing magnet has quite a small size and includes a M6 eye bolt. The magnet has a diameter of ca. 3 cm and is entirely made of neodymium. The magnet may look small and cute, but it can lift a lot of objects out of the water.
Perfect for small finds
This fishing magnet is relatively harmless and perfectly suited to retrieve smaller finds out of the water. These mainly consist of coins, which are the main found objects with a fishing magnet.

Which fishing magnet should I buy to go magnet fishing?
Which magnet is used for magnet fishing?
A block magnet has several advantages. It protects the magnet and pulls in all directions. Block magnets are mostly a bit more expensive compared to a normal magnet, but it also has more advantages. Experienced magnet fishers often tell us they love fishing with a block magnet.
Our range has 90, 200, 250, 300, 450, 750 kilo block magnets.
Most magnets in our selection are pot magnets. We offer pot magnets with a hole or a thread. Pot magnets with a thread often lose less pulling force because they have no hole in the middle. Pot magnets only pull from the bottom side, but have a large surface. They don’t have any protective casing, enabling optimal use of their pulling force. You can buy pot magnets even on a small budget.
Our range has 55, 75, 110, 130, 175, 240, 300, 360, 400, 500, 600 and 800 kilo pot magnets.
These kind of magnets offer plenty advantages. The outer edge is made of steel and serves as a protective casing for the magnet. The magnet can be placed horizontally or vertically. Two eye bolts are included. This double-sided fishing magnet pulls from both sides and is made of neodymium.
Our range has 250 and 800 kilo magnets. Later this year a 500 and 600 kilo magnet will be added to our collection. More info on this later.
NEW: We now also have smaller ones: 200 kg and 240 kg and 1200 kg!!
Which magnet would we recommend you to use for magnet fishing?
The Fishing magnet webshop is convinced that every fishing magnet has its own advantages. We have talked to several magnet fishers and they all have different opinions. The best way to find out which fishing magnet is the best fit for you is to test it on your own when you go magnet fishing.
