    I don't have a good feeling about the one day MX fishing license being temporary. I'm thinking that the online price increases in 2018 for an yearly MX fishing license (+$9 USD) and FMM (+$6 USD) weren't enough. Now, since there's a new MX government there'll soon be new rules to increase revenue. We'll see if continues to encompass U.S. Sport Fishermen.

    Here's a thought: The U.S. should reciprocate by charging foreigners (pedestrians and vehicles) a one trip fee every time they cross the border into the U.S. What a great way to pay for a Wall!.

    You guys are making an issue out of nothing; you can still buy them from anywhere but the BCS FONMAR website. Case-in-point: 20181229_165847.jpg

    FONMAR isn't issuing yearly permits because they want charter captains to purchase permits for their guests so they know who is fishing on what days and boats, I'm guessing so their operations aren't under the table. That was at least the gist I got, if you want more info call Dona Jenkins and ask to speak to Bernadine, she called CONAPESCAs office in SD to figure it out. Seaforth, Fishermans, and I assume Dana still sell yearly permits.

    The real problem is Fishermans Landing adding $18 to the cost of a $46 annual mexican fishing license. Almost a 50% markup sucks!
    You can get them at the Mexican Consulate office downtown SD too.
    Get your TIP (yes you do still need them) and FMM at the border...it's simple and cheaper than having someone do it for you. The 180 day FMM visa has been working fine for me the past few years even when they were saying you needed one visa per trip and it needed to be for sea travel only. I've been checked twicw over the past 2 years and 180 day FMM was adequate combined with valid mex fishing lic and TIP. I've never been asked for radio license even though I carry one.

    Hola. I suspect this has nothing to do with our new most excellent and totally cool president but more to do with the state of BCS and perhaps the allotment of permits that may have been assigned to fonmar bcs. Remember BCS adds on a (high) fee to each permit so its in their best interest to sell a daily one.

    Price comparisons:
    Conapesca/FonmarBCS
    Day: $140/$219
    Week: $350/$429
    Month: $525/$604
    Year: $700/$779

    Anyway, a friend just called me about this and I was able to program in a payment form so that he can pay for his one year permit at the bank. I have been doing this for years directly with the feds, no middleman. Annual permit is $700 pesos, here is the website: https://e5cinco.conapesca.gob.mx/ayudadeportiva.php

    My friend is at the bank and when he returns with his payment stub and receipt, I will use the codes to print up his permit. I'll check back here when I have success.

    Just a note, every year I do this for myself and my husband and for some reason his never works but mine does. So I just call the number at the bottom of the conapesca page and give them the payment codes then I'm able to go back in and print his up no problems. They also keep record of all the permits that you buy so in case you need to reprint, its easy.

    ¡VIVA MÉXICO!

    Hey @apple harbor maybe you should change the title of this thread because it is misleading and as I proved, untrue. Its an issue ONLY with Fonmar BCS, nowhere else. Anyone who tells you that our most excellent and really cool new president is the cause of this is just butthurt that Morena won federal and most muni governments in BCS and will win this state too next time around.

    TIP is indeed needed when in Baja. They will let you pass south through the border but it is required anywhere when fishing in Mexican waters.
    This website works for fishing license.

    If you will be fishing on a boat in Mexico, fishing licenses will be needed for passengers on board. As of January 2008, only fishing permits are required, fishing permits for the boat are no longer required. (However temporary vehicle import permits from Banjercito will be required if the boat is operated on Mexican waters or while driving in mainland Mexico.)

    It states "required if operated on Mexican waters". Nothing has changed since 2008...you need a TIP.
    You need one even if you launch in SD and fish the Coronado Islands.
    I was checked in LA Bay twice this year as well...for fishing lic and TIP.
    Get your TIP. Its good for 10 years and will be a pain if you get asked for it and don't have it.
    All marinas I have been to in Mexico require it for slip rental too.

    "My friend is at the bank and when he returns with his payment stub and receipt, I will use the codes to print up his permit. I'll check back here when I have success."

    Thank you for the heads up, I'm going through the process and I'm hung up on the bank transfer. Website states to utilize Banamex portal, but not having any success. There isn't any Banamex branches in So Cal. Where did your friend go?
