Online Mexican Sportfishing Licenses


Sport Fishing licenses are required when fishing from your boat or when going out with a guide. You do not need a license when fishing from shore. If you fish from your own vessel, everyone aboard must have a license if there is any fishing gear present.

With Bahia de los Angeles being named as a Biosphere Reserve several years back, Sportfishing continues at the bay following the guidelines outlined in the Mexican Sportfishing Regulations (links below).
