Best advice I can give you is to make a couple of trips with someone that knows what they are doing.

 I will help you if I can, but I'm not commercially experienced. If you are from bayou la batre, you are already in good crabbing grounds. Mobile Bay is brimming with crab. I see you have asked about Mississippi gulf coast but you would have to haul over here from Alabama. Ms bay area is less than half the size of mobile, but if you want to know where, here goes; with commercial gear you can set in Biloxi bay north to the railroad bridge but no further and no traps within the shipping channel. A bunch of barge traffic moves through the bay bringing coal to the power plant. I have seen commercial fisherman using either tilapia or menhaden for bait. I would think menhaden would be better. I don't know what out of state licensing fees you may incur, but there is a link here in the resources section that will take you to DMR. Welcome to BCA and keep us posted of your progress.
