FLORIDA Crabber:

I'm trying to build my own Blue Crab trap and
I'm having difficulty finding chicken wire that's labled 1 1/2" mesh.
It is my understanding that the mesh is measured at the widest tip-to-tip in the mesh.
What's confusing me is that the 1" mesh found at Lowe's seems to be 1" wide at the narrower part.

Also, since mesh is oblong on chicken wire fencing, would a 2"x1" rectangle mesh be considered legal?

Thanks,
Brian

You need to go to a supply house like Lee Fisher and get hex crab wire.
