Magnet fishing is the act of throwing a strong magnet into a body of water and pulling it back out, trying to catch and remove metal objects from the water.
Local "magnet fisherman" Shayne Balliet has been practicing the hobby for a few months, chronicling his finds on his YouTube channel.
Balliet has found items ranging from bolts to bicycles, and from weight benches to shotguns.
One video on Balliet's YouTube shows a Remington rifle being pulled from the water, another shows a Mossberg shotgun being pulled from the same body of water. Both firearms were turned over to the Pennsylvania State Police.
"With so many people asking how to get into the hobby," Balliet said "I decided to make a video that explains everything you need to know."
In the video below, Balliet covers everything from what items you need, what the initial cost is, what magnets to use, tips and pointers, and what to avoid doing.
Depending on whether you already own gloves and some rope, getting into magnet fishing can be as cheap as $30 for the magnet.
Magnet fishing is a great way to spend a day outside with the family and clean up the environment while you're at it.
