I agree, I have not yet found any regulation that requires you to stay even 12 inches away from a lobster trap. Now there is a stiff fine if you touch, or reach inside a lobster trap.

I believe, but you should check the law yourself that after the commercial season is over (or even during) if you find an abandoned lobster trap (float has broken away and the trap is lost" you may fix the trap so it the lid will not shut, but you can not reach inside to free the occupants, they have to figure that out for themselves.
