Electro magnet would be the safest way to "magnet fish".
Last year we were getting ready to leave Chester Frost on Chickamauga and as we were coming past the dock we saw a guy throwing something in the lake attached to a rope and pulling it back up , we didn't have a clue to what he was doing until we got to the ramp , guy was magnet fishing, worst part is he was throwing in between people trying to actually fish off the dock, thought it was pretty rude on his part as a family pulled up all their gear and left , the other fisherman were just standing there staring in disbelief at the nerve of the guy

I want to get a magnet now lol
