Lake Crabs

My father recently gave me a dozen crab nets. They are brand new. I need to place about 50' of rope per net for where I crab. Can anyone give me an idea of where to purchase a 600' roll of rope (light nylon, possibly braided) for the crab nets. I know how to rig them as I have been crabbing with him for 35 years, but have never actually purchased the rope. Thanks.
Tried Gus's?
Have you tried Gus's in Slidell? I'm not sure where you live, but Gus is the man with the solution. He's really nice and can help you out. Give him a call.
Hercules Wire, Rope & Sling.
If you have a Hercules wire,rope & sling in the area, they will have large spools of rope.

I buy all my rope in bulk thru Memphis Net Company. Good prices and very quick delivery.R
Alario has what your looking for. They're located right off westbank expressway in Westwego.
Lake Crab net rope
I have not really looked around. I thought there is a place around St Bernard Hwy in or around Gentilly. I google searched but did not find any close to my house. I will look at you guys' suggestions. Thanks to all. Gary
Memphis net as Allison said. I just purchased 1000 ft. hollow braid poly. from Ag. Mfg. and Textiles for my nets.
They have an Ebay store.
Let us know what you find and the price.
Good luck.
Memphis Net
I think i am going with Memphis Net. They have a 600 ft spool for $26.37. Thanks again for the suggestions.
50 feet?
Glad you found what you wanted. I'm curious to know where you are crabbing, if you don't mind telling. I crab in Maurepas. About 10 ft. at the most. Good luck.
I emailed you.
