    Late report .
    Weather side of the north island was holding some larger models . Limited by 8 am Friday and done by 9 am on Saturday on some better grade fish . If you plan on fishing the the Coronados make sure you have your visas. Mexican Navy are checking .
    Team Paddywacker will be targeting Bluefin this weekend . Have fun at the circus .:-)

    Ha ha.....
    TIP is a Temporary Import Permit that's required to bring a boat down to Mexico. They sometimes check for that paperwork.

    I was told you only need the TIP if you make port . So far no one I know has been asked for it when checked by the Navy.

    The answer is YES.

    You are required to have a TIP but they don't always ask. What they will ask for, for sure is.... your Mexican fishing license, your passport ( also required by the US to legally leave and return to this country ) your visa or FMM ( issued by the navy for on the water use. ) your current registration. those are for sure, what you might be asked for along with that is, proof of Mexican insurance, a radio operators license ( not a Mexican requirement it is an international law ) You can get a TIP and your visa/FMM here on line. https://www.californiasportfishing.org/fmm-visitor-form. This is really easy to do, it costs about $26.00 per person. THE MINIMUM you can expect to be asked for is, Mexican fishing license, passport, FMM, and your current registration. Everyone on the boat must have all of that, except the registration.
    it's easy to get, it's cheap... don't fuck up your fishing trip by not having it and don't fuck up fishing down there for everyone else by not complying with the minimum so they don't get real hard core and fuck with everyone else.

    New boat? First boat? Be safe, be courteous, have fun.

    It doesn’t seem easy every trip need to pay 32$ Per person the process is stupid pay a fee, then email receipt to someone other place and hope for a email with approval? Wtf is this shit they really fucked us on that. Why not raise the Mexican license price or make something yearly for within the 12 me radius. Does anyone know for sure on this TiP I’m trying to fill out the website and for port of entry I don’t know what to put, it’s a slide down column and there all in spanish I don’t see anything about coming in by sea or about Coronados

    Walk across the border and buy your 180 day fmm visa good for fishing the Coronado islands for less than $30 per person. You can buy a TIP permit at this location also. I believe it's good for ten years. Conapesca told me it was not needed.

    You can not use the 180 day visa for multiple entries by sea . However if that was the case i would gladly pay a reasonable fee to do so .

    I understand your concerns and I understand that most people refuse to use because the way the Mexicans write their laws. On the other hand, rarely has a boat been impounded and most of the time, they tell you to go home. When you walk across the border, they all say it's what you do and need to be legal fishing off the coronados multi-use for 180 days fishing from San Diego. Over and over. I've been checked twice and was told I was okay. Rarely am I checked and if the navy doesn't like my visa, they will tell me to go home. That has not happened.

    For the port of entry put down Ensenada or Ens. If you have problems with there English version, use google chrome it will translate everything for you.
    No doubt about it, it can be confusing and this is mostly the Mexicans fault... one agency doesn't know what the other one is doing. All this shit changed when they started requiring a visa to fish down there, the on the water stuff is different... you used to only have to get a TIP if you entered a port, but they want money and they want it from the fishing community, thus having a visa/fmm and a TIP is required if your boat is in Mexican waters. You won't hear that from the different agencies and you might not even be asked for it by the navy,depending on who it is checking you... Like I always say, "just because a law isn't enforced doesn't mean it isn't the law". That is what you are supposed to have and for $50 for ten years is it worth risking your fishing trip, the money you lose if they send you home is more than that.
    I'm curious, do they make you fill out a manifest when you get your visa at the border? If you have gotten away with it you have been real lucky because it is not good for on the water. they are all different and they all cost a different amount, by air, by land, and by sea. Your on the water visa/fmm is only good for one entry and one departure and it costs $26, but you have 180 days to use that one entry and one departure.
    I too think it is all bullshit... it would be nice if they went back to the time you got a permit for your boat and it covered everyone on it... no passport, visa, fishing lic. it covered it all... but that will never happen. We can all bitch and wish it was something different but the fact is, it is their call and if we don't play their game it will only get worse, not better.

    For the record, I don't care where you get your visa, I'm not trying to argue with you, there is no argument. I am only trying to let you know what the Mexican navy has said they want and help save some people the cost of finding out the hard way... so save your energy giving me a bunch of shit, it's not my rules or my call, it's theirs.
    I don't care what you do or how you go about it, just do something so you don't end up fucking it up for everyone else. For those of you have been around long enough.... look at what happened to the sporties, they got 86 from the Islands for a year, don't think it can't happen to the private boaters too. When they get tired of putting up with people's bullshit they will get real hard core just to make a point and show who is in control. I know I would, wouldn't you?

    Go here & fill out your info - put in the # of passengers, select the start & end dates that equal 180 days and pay your fee. The only issue I had is I attempted to input my passport card # but the site wants your passbook number, I have both so it's no issue.

    https://www.banjercito.com.mx/registroEmbarques/

    You will get a .pdf that you can make as many copies as you like.

    Boat registration
    Mex license for everyone
    passports

    You DON'T need a radio license unless your boat is documented (no CF numbers) - same as in the states.

    You DON'T need a TIP unless you're towing down or making port.
