Default Plastic coated wire mesh for pinfish trap?

Does anyone know where I could buy some locally? Don't need much, and the stuff I've seen online seems to come in pretty big lots. Didn't see any on Brunson Net's website.

I built some crawfish traps from coated 1/4" hardware cloth from tractor supply, worked really well until the gators found them.

I tried finding some locally a couple of years ago. Wound up making a "commercial" size one out of the 1" galvanized mesh wire from Lowe's. It has held up really well for the past year. Not a bit of rust, which is contrary to what I had been expecting.
The only thing that ever works on an old boat is the owner.
