I am a Canadian citizen and will be visiting San Pedro Jan 2013
Do I need a licence to fish in San Pedro?
Where can I get a fishing licence?
Where are good spots to fish by myself (without a guide) near San Pedro?

Check out this link to a previous discussion on this subject:

You can fish off any dock that does not say "no fishing allowed". If you have a golf cart go all the way to the South end of the island and fish the channel there. You can wade and fish any where, but it depends on where you are staying and how much boat traffic there is. I have seen people catch fish wade off the beach in downtown area, but I would not recommend it!!!
As far as a fishing license is concerned - - yes it is required, no it is not and I don't know where to get one!!!

Have fun and tight lines!!!

Simon, are the fishing guides requiring their clients to purchase fishing licenses before they take them out? My guess is not.

I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

That's something they'll have to deal with if they get caught. All our clients are required to purchase a license if they wish to fish on one of our boats, it's the law.
