To answer your questions, why not just ask your local game warden, review recreational fishing regulations here http://www.fishla.org/fishing/recreational-fishing-regulations/recreational-shrimping/ or call one of these numbers 1-800-256-2749 | 1-225-765-2800

Yes you can use a winch to pick the trawl out the water. As long as you stay under quota for total shrimp you do not need a commercial license. Here is the kicker. Any trawl that is hoisted/assisted out of the water by a mechanical device requires a TED. Remember those..... Turtle Excluder Device
