"There are places in the Keys, especially oceanside, where you can ease up to another boat tarpon fishing and not cause a problem, if you know which way the fish are swimming," says Capt. Tad Burke, a 24-year pro and commodore of the Florida Keys Fishing Guides Association (thewildsideguides.com). "The key is local knowledge. On the other hand, if I'm fishing for bonefish, I don't want anyone else coming close. I often pole back and forth, waiting for fish to move out of channels or lakes to feed, and I don't want someone crowding me. Learn the local nuances beforehand, and you're less apt to cause a problem."
