Hello, I am Earl. I am a retired Game warden from Mississippi and have moved to Alabama. I am 100% disabled but want to go crabbing and fishing from a pier in either Gulf Port or Biloxi. I have a few questions I would like to ask before I plan a trip. 1. How much is a 3 day recreational fishing and Crabbing non resident license, 2. Can you fish and use a crab net/trap at the same time/ . 3. What type crab net/trap can you use? Can you use the plastic coated metal crab traps that fold up when you pull them up to check them or do you have to use the nylon or cotton mesh 2 ring crab nets? 4. How many crab nets/traps can one person have out at a time? 5. What is the legal size to keep blue crabs, and are they measured from sharp pine spine end to other spine end. 6. Can you crab fish at night . 7. Is November a good time to go providing the weather is still warm for that time of year? I know the water temperature needs to be from 55 to 80 degrees to have the best luck.

Thank you.

I also found this:
License fees for nonresidents may vary. Call the MDMR at 228-374-5000 for current license fees if you are a nonresident.
Your best bet is to call that number. This is a fairly low-volume forum. It's possible someone may directly know the answer, but unlikely.
