Default Fishing radius ediquette.

What is the proper distance to stay away from someone fishing while in a moving boat. What distance actually affects the fish in the area? Obviously the shallower the water the more effect it might have. I always have a problem with people coming into "the cove I live on" buzzing my dock chasing mullet. Especially when I am fishing.

If you have to question yourself if you may be too close, then you proably are too close.

I try to stay away from others unless I'm at a rig or reef, then respect and common sense comes into play.

Sorry, the bay area around my dock. I always ride away from people fishing when im on my ski, but people constantly come in for mullet and crossing right through the area im fishing. I'm just wondering what radius would actually displace fish.

I think fish get used to boat traffic in the main channels, but across the flats and shallows they will certainly spook. It's bad karma to ride across a flat at speed anyway, but especially if you see someone fishing there. Has happened to me quite a bit. Mostly tourists who don't have a clue.

I know if I am in the ICW or anywhere fishing dock lights I try to stay away from any docks that people are on. I don't want to mess with the area if they are going to "maybe" fish since it is thier dock and all. The couple of times that I have seen people out on thier dock they have been really cool and told me to have at it on thier lights and that if they knew I was going to fish them they wouldn't have made so much noise. I know that when I am in my kayak I have had a few boats pretty close. Even when I was trolling out at Johnson Beach about 1+ miles off shore the boats came close...all that ocean and they want to pass by me. Oh well. What can I do.
