From revolutionary pre-cut crab trap wire to Gator Power

Southern Wire

Southern Wire has created an interesting
line of her own as a manufacturer and

We believe in renovating the tradition when the traditional roll
wire can not meet the requirements of fast and easy trap
construction. We also value passing the savings to our customer
when they place their trusts in us.

We receive phone calls on a daily basis about shipping out of state. If you
are interested in representing our exclusive products in your area,
please contact us.

Recreational fishermen in South Louisiana, please contact our LOCAL DISTRIBUTORS for crab traps under 15 pieces.

Semi-Automatic Hand Pliers and 9/16" Stainless Steel D Rings

We asked ourselves how we can help our fellow fisherman to eliminate the pains on reloading hog rings on hand pliers one piece at the time. Pneumatic air gun does not seem to be the answer for a seasonal business.

Finally the answer is here!
