The area for lobsters is into the drying zone, but the tidal reach on some areas varies massively .. west coast is 3-5 metres ... isle of islay is 1.5-2 tops
you need to know your tide and local area ... If thats in a bay .. good chance your pot will be 'collectable' without wellies !
I'm not commercial .. dinner plate for me also .. my coastline is pure rock .. I dunno how the feckers get in the pots sometimes ?
plus .. ive lost many pots down holes
.. but I too have to fish 'inside' the lines of the commercials now and again
