I have really just started trying to get serious about hybrid/striper fishing and try to do all I can to learn about the fish and different techniques used to catch them. I joined the Oklahoma Striped Bass Association and joined fishing notebook a few months back to learn all I can from other experienced anglers. Although, this is my first post, I continually read reports and other topics on here and have recognized a few members while I have been on skiatook lake. I was fishing skiatook a few weeks ago and was going to a spot I had caught a few hybrids the time before. When I got there, there were a couple of guides and a few other boats fishing the area. Out of respect I left the area and went searching for other fish. So my question is, what is every bodies opinion on how close is to close to fish by somebody.

Welcome to the 'book JT. I just pull right up and tie on to their side!  Seriously though, do unto others as you'd have them do unto you.

For me I don't mind at all as long as you come in on your trolling motor. What happened this weekend a couple of times is other anglers come in looking at their locator with big motor running. My question is, what else do they need to see if the rods are bent in the water? It happened twice and the fish disappear. Last weekend there were 6 boats all in same area and a guy came thru the middle of us with his big motor going and all the fish disappear. I really kind of like it if they are using live bait. The more bait in the water the longer the fish will stick around. Just my two cents.

I always use Dave's marker buoy as my guide. When I've run over it, I was too close ... or, something like that   (aw shucks - it only happened once...)
The more you practice, the luckier you get.

I was fishing with Tony and his son a while back. We had people run over our lines at least three times. One guy even held his hands and beer up and gave us the "it happens, I don't care" gesture. He saw our lines and ran them over anyways. One of these days I'm going to lose my cool over this. Accidents are one thing, intentional is another.

Cash was this on the lake I fished with you and Tony? If so, that is bad on that lake. One day I am going to have the lake ranger fishing with me and see if some courtesy can be suggested to those folks who do that. Jet skis within 100' when the lake is nearly completely open really ticks me off. Its like they see and purposely come over to show off.

Last year I got to Skiatook at sunup one day and set out a dozen jugs in the back of Beaver island. Came back to find one of those Crosstimber's Marina wake board boats using them to wakeboard around - seeing how close they could cut around them. Mind you, these jugs were 15 to 20 yards from the shore! This guy had to go out of his way to even get to them. I start checking my jugs and this jerk does not stop! He literally comes within 50 foot of my boat, swamping me from the transom end, over and over and over again. SO - INCREDIBLY - RUDE!!! Don't give Crosstimbers Marina your business if they do stuff like this. 
The more you practice, the luckier you get.

Hunter- not sure I've fished with you but my mind is feeble for a younger guy. This was at Kaw. Good luck with the ranger, unfortunately some folks just don't "get it."
