Drove down Sunday after seeing the place mentioned in a previous thread.  Picked up 6 pounds of stainless steel hog rings (weigh them yourself) at $8.50 per pound, and a roll of #42 tarred twine for door lines at $17.80 for a 2 lb. spool.  I though both were reasonable prices.

The Good, The Bad and a Sidenote:

The good - great selection of ropes, twine, rings, fasteners, floats, baskets, netting, or anything else a commercial fisherman could use.  This is NOT a bait and tackle shop.  For example, they don't sell crab traps, but they have (or can get) everything you need to make them.  The store has some serious equipment and clothing, some items in bulk, some per piece.  Definitely worth the trip and I will be back down when I have more time.

The bad - there is no pricing on anything in the store.  I'm not sure why, but maybe they figure you either need it, or you don't.  The gentleman that was working was nice enough, and seemed to be the owner, but he did not know pricing or quantities (e.g., how much rope in a spool, how many rings in a lb., etc.), so you have to ask what the price of everything is.  I probably would have spent more money (it was like a toy store for me), but I felt like I was being a PITA with asking how much everything costs.

A sidenote - when you go over the canal bridge, immediately start looking for the "boat ramp" sign and follow it.  That will get you to the store.  The sidenote is that I never knew the boat ramp existed.  It is a newly-renovated, concrete, free, public ramp and dock with plenty of parking for trailers and easy access to the canal and the back bays behind Wildwood.

It's a great store.  Been shopping there for a few years.
