If I'm fishing on my boat but not within 12 miles of the islands, what all do I need? Mex fishing license and passports? I've heard conflicting opinions

Well if you check on line you will find everything saying no and referencing the landings/sportboats... But when I read the Mexican Navy list or requirements it ended with, "to fish more than 12 miles all you need is a fishing license and a passport."
The US requires you to have a passport to leave or re-enter the US so my advice would be to have one. I wouldn't worry about the Mexicans, I would be more concerned about homeland security. good luck

I have both US passport and the US passport plastic "card", can I bring and use the passport card instead of the blue US passport book?

If you are fishing your private boat you must bring the ID you used on all the Mexcian paperwork. If you are fishing a charter then you would bring one or the other.
