This is basically the same issue of spotburning we have for our trout streams but it is much more intense and sensitive. On the popular surf sites you can only post what county you fished in a report anything else will get deleted...same as pics that can give up locations. Apparently there's a lot of Internet and cell phone "fishing" going on and spots get blown up quickly. During peak runs it brings out the circus mentality and crowd...where you were by yourself, you hook a fish...blink...and you're surrounded by 25 goons. You try to get back to your spot and some guy is literally standing in your old boot prints and might not be polite about giving it back.
That said I've met some good people on the beach. I've been offered rides to the jetty in IBSP...I guess when all you have is a fly rod and are walking you look like you could use some help. That said I agree with the above about spin gear, most times you have no advantage with a fly rod...but I haven't been lucky enough to site fish for stripers....snook is another story.
I figure it doesn't hurt to engage in conversation but don't get bent if people aren't too friendly...
