How to know you're in State Waters
What's the easiest way to make sure I'm inside 9nm? Is there a certain longitude that I simply need to stay inside (north) of? I don't want to find myself in federal waters catching snapper after the fed waters are closed.

There is no set North coordinate line you can stay inside of because the state lines are not parallel to a North coordinate line. Just like for the west end of Baldwin county you'd have to stay inside of approximately 30.20 N while on the east end/state line side with Florida you'd have to stay inside of 30.23 N for AL's 3nm limit. At the AL/FL state line 9nm is around 30.14 N but then over at Pensacola Beach and Navarre the mark is around 30.19 N and 30.24 N respectively.
Your GPS (depending on make, model, "quality") should show state water boundaries. If not and I were you, I'd make sure to purchase the maps to show it. $100 for a map is sure less expensive than a game and fish ticket...
