When I leave traps out overnight, I have taken to putting them in dark water 
and hiding the line.  If it is sandy, I cover the line with sand and then 
place some rocks on top of that.  Sometimes I have tied the line off 

I use black marine quality twine I bought at Walmart so it is less visible.  
You just have to remember or mark an area near where the trap is.  So far, I 
have only lost one trap but figure it was my own faulty memory.
