Need help finding a fishing magnet for cable fishing

I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum. Please move it to the correct forum or kindly remind me.

I'm looking for something like this.

The issue with this one is that it's too big. I need something that is able to go through a hole that is 5/8 in diameter or less. Or just any strong magnet that is small enough to be tied to a finishing pole or tape. Any help is much appreciated.

Thread moved to electrical forum.

Since I'm an alarm installer I come across all type of magnets. Many magnetic switch sets come with 1/2 x 1/4 inch Neodymium rare earth disc magnets. I just epoxy a hook on them. I keep several in my toolbox.

Here's one place that has them. You may also find them on amazon based on the description.
