Sorry, I missed this bit .. this quite often happens near me too .. but they often just lay strings of blinders to keep you out. Because of their scattergun strategy, they dont know where the 'hot' spots are either, if your coastline is rocky, they wont be able to set a string close enough to the shore either, but we can, in a smaller boat or RIB.

Sometimes mine are set soo close to the rock shore, I have to watch its not recoverable from someone 'on' the shore if the wind blows the line towards the shore...usually the backwash keeps it off though.. and it wouldnt be the first time a pot was exposed at low tide .... with a lobster in it .. they dont need to be all that deep, but it just depends on your local coast
