I want to build a crab pot with my son and was wondering if anyone knew where to find Aquamesh or a similar product. I checked Lowes and Home Depot but their mesh feels kind of wimpy for the main pot exterior. We live in the Newport News/Williamsburg area. Also, where to get culling rings, hooks, and all the other accessories?

There is Marshall's MFG in Atlantic.  They have everything you need.  I don't think they will sell wire by the foot tho...  Undecided If you want just a pot or two I can sell you a couple cut and folded.  All you have to do is asm. them....  I'm right up at marshell's.

Thanks for the info, Jack. I already saw the tutorial on building a crab pot. That's what got me thinking about building them on my own. Marshall Mfg might be a little far but if it's my only option, then I guess that's where I'll have to go. Any idea on how much a roll of mesh costs? I assume it comes in either 50 foot or 100 foot rolls.

100 foot roll I just got was 130bucks.  It will make 10 pots.  I "HIGHLY" recommend that you have them cut and fold it.  That costs 10 bucks for the roll.  Hand cutting a roll and folding is a B$tch. Grin You will also need 10 bait boxes, 2 bucks each.  To do it right you also need about 10lbs of 11ga bracing wire.  Hog rings. Zincs and frames if ya what to do it right. And line/float. Oh yeah, and bungee cord and bait box covers.. Smiley
