    After ww2 german pows used to dump explosives++ in every pond avaliable. So be careful, if it goes "BOM" you most likely will be on the top of the 50m high waterfontern and you will be spread over a wide area. Only the seagulls will appreciate this effort.

    Go on Youtube and look at DirtyDiverDiver (i think it was that name), then you can see how he is picking "gold" from waters all over in Germany.

    I prefer not to give any advices to perfom such work, just in case you become "Carne Molida". I have found some dangerous items that i now in my older years cannot understand i dared to even touch...


    Be careful, it is not fun to be blind or crippled for a piece of rusted m24

    I've seen a lot of videos of people doing it my advice would be Magnet fishing you just tie a really strong magnet to a rope and drag it along till you find something

    My magnet is tightly connected to a very heavy object deep under the sea. I used a neodym 750kg magnet.

    One day i hope to find out what fish i actually have caught.......

    The bigest "danger" in Ostfront lakes and ponds is that You will not see anything - visibility is like 50 cm. And most items are covered with mud and also in relic condition.
