While it is possible to make money while magnet fishing, can you find gold when you go magnet fishing? That is what I will be exploring in this article, as well as how to find it, what to do with it and where you should go magnet magnet fishing for gold. Finding a gun is considered the holy grail of finds by many magnet fishing fans, but in my opinion that title should belong to gold. Gold is much more valuable than a gun, and (arguably!) far less dangerous.
Can you find gold when you go magnet fishing?
Gold is a valuable metal that has long been a symbol of extravagance and wealth. But is it is it possible to find gold when you go magnet fishing? As gold is not a ferrous metal and therefore is not magnetic, it is impossible to just catch a bar of gold with a magnet. However there is still hope.
Your best bet of finding gold is finding a safe that contains gold ingots or jewellery. Safes are relatively common magnet fishing finds and while you are more likely to find cash than gold, it is still very possible. Most safes found when magnet fishing are empty and open, so your chances of finding gold are slim, but not zero. I will share with you a few tips to increase the chances of finding gold when you go magnet fishing.
How to find gold when you go magnet fishing
While you can’t guarantee that you will find gold while magnet fishing, you can improve your chances of finding it. Persistence will be key to finding gold, or any rare finds when you go magnet fishing. I will share with you a few tips to increase the likelihood of you finding gold when you go magnet fishing.
If you want to find a safe when you go magnet fishing, your best bet is going magnet fishing near areas with a lot of people living in them. Chances are the safe was stolen and then the criminals couldn’t open it and decided to just dump it. You could also find an open safe, that was dumped after it had been opened.
What to do if you find a safe
If you find a safe when you go magnet fishing and it is open and empty, then you can either sell it for scrap metal, or keep it. If you find a locked safe however, things can get much more interesting. You have to make a decision. Do you want to open the safe or do you want to hand it in to the police. If you decide to try and open the safe, there are a few ways to go about it.
If you try to open the safe yourself, it can be quite dangerous. If you decide to go this route, I would recommend doing your research, finding out the best way to open the safe you have, and going for it. Bear in mind that there might not actually be anything inside the safe.
There is another, easier but less lucrative way to do it. If you bring it to a local locksmith, chances are that they will open it for you, in exchange for 50% of whatever is inside (if anything). This will be an absolute deal breaker for some of you, but I am sure that some of you will not mind swapping some treasure for a bit less hardship.
How to catch gold when you go magnet fishing
There are a few things you can do to increase the chances of finding gold when you go magnet fishing. These tips will not just improve your chances of finding gold, but will also make you more likely to catch other, valuable finds.
Get a stronger magnet
If you want to catch a safe, you will want to have a strong magnet. Safes are very heavy metal boxes, often having few nooks or crannies for a grappling hook to catch on to. This means that you will need to pull it out while entirely depending on the strength of your magnet. The good news is that safes are often thick steel, the ideal material for your magnet to attach to. If you don’t think your current magnet is up to the task, maybe a new magnet fishing kit is in order.
Go magnet fishing in the right place
What you catch when you go magnet fishing entirely depends on where you go magnet fishing. When trying to catch gold, you need to pick the right location for it. While there could be a safe at the bottom of the river in the middle of the countryside somewhere, it is far less likely you will find a safe there than in an urban neighborhood. It is also important that you try not to go magnet fishing in spots where people go magnet fishing regularly. Chances are that any safes in such locations will be long gone.
When you go magnet fishing, you might not find a safe, or a gun, or whatever it is that you want to find the first time. What really matters is how much you go magnet fishing. Every hour spent magnet fishing improves your chances of finding something extraordinary.
