Cody - North Cody Game Warden Travis Crane was checking fishermen earlier this month at East Newton Lake when he came across two people “magnet fishing”. 

"When I first saw the couple, I thought they might be illegally fishing by snagging and keeping fish,” Crane said.  “Turns out, they were magnet fishing, which has nothing to do with catching fish. Basically, they were throwing out a huge magnet and dragging across the bottom of the lake to collect metal objects.  They had collected old lures, boat parts, hooks, knives and even a shuriken.”
