Night sailing

I'm getting ready for my first night passage. Mystic, CT to Block Island, RI
Tomorrow night is the full moon and we leave with the ebb at 11:00PM. I will have two crew with me.
Aside from using inflatable PFD w/ tether for leaving the cockpit...

Any advise for avoiding lobster pots at night? Should be perfect weather for a sail, except, of course, light winds So we might be motoring.

The moon will be bright, we are in familiar waters, and we are safety aware boaters, but those damn lobster pots!
