    The one weekend that I couldn't get down there my buddy had a run in with a CO. Nothing drastic but according to him the CO was a bit of a hard nose and promissed him he'd get even with him. The license on his snow machine had expired and proceeded to write him a ticket. After the ticket was written up my buddy pulled out his wallet and there was the up todate license. He forgot to put it on. Well that peed the CO off and hense said he'd get him one of these days.

    So about two or three weeks past since the incedent we were back down in the land of lakes fishing and once on the ice my buddy started to drill holes, a lot of holes. I asked why and he told me the story and said he thought Fred, that's the name he gave the CO might show up. We each set up with two lines each then my buddy started to put down extra lines with a magnet attached to them saying these were for Fred.

    Well wouldn't you know it later in the morning this guy comes walking onto the ice yelling don't move I've got you now, you're fishing with too many lines. I said to myself this should be good. He picks up one line that has a minnow attached to it and lays it on the ice, walks over to the next line with the same results. Next he walks over to another picks it up and it's one with a magnet attached to it. What the hell is this he asked, when my buddy answered we're fishing for Steelhead. I'm telling you, you should have seen the look on this CO's face. If looks could kill, then my buddy asked him if he wanted a ride back to his snow machine. I don't know how far back it was because we never heard it.. We never saw him again...
    Haha, that is too funny.
    I’ve had good interactions with CO,s, I wouldn’t want to set a target on my back.

    Just bought this one from Amazon for 25 bucks it's only 300 pounds but should be good enough to play with.

    We mag fish the Kawarthas. Lots of coins, nails, hooks, even bbq utensils. It's fun and inexpensive to start.
    I can give you some tips.
    If you are "dipping" a magnet around docks then get one that has the eye in the center of the top face.
    If you are "throwing" it and retrieving then get a mag that has the eye on the side, it wont tip up when you draw it back.
    I made a telescopic pole from a painting handle and put a big eye screw on the end for the rope, like a tip top rod guide. It helps to dip it and cover the target area better.
    Mind the rope behind you and make sure it's not a trip hazard to onlookers (oh they come to see) and that the tag end is tied off so you don't lose the works.
    Happy attracting!

    Well I got the 25 dollar magnet from Amazon. The magnet is supposedly rated for 330 pounds and I lifted a 100 pound metal plate.

    The rope well I doubt it could hold more then 150, it looks like para cord.

    I think I will keep it the magnet is pretty cool.
