What spots are good for magnet fishing in Victoria, TX?

Magnet Fishing Spots in Victoria, TX

A good rule of thumb when magnet fishing is to go to places on the water where people hang out or have hung out extensively. To this end, docks, piers, bridges and so forth are solid. Popular fishing spots are also a good choice.

In Victoria, we have some great lakes and rivers with parks and public gathering places on their banks. We’ve compiled a few of our favorites below.

Note that at some areas, gators may be in the vicinity, so be on your guard.
