Fishing, shore casting Half Moon Bay

Staying down the road from La Buena Vida and would like to do some shore fishing. Any recommendations or things I need to be aware of?

We stay on HMB every year. Never seen anyone fishing from shore - I think it might be illegal. You can charter a boat though....

Fish off the rocks away from the beach is OK

It is not illegal. You only need a license on a boat. I've been taking a collapsible rod for years. I use artificials, a few minnow type and a few poppers. A few beverages, a leaf, and all is good! Tight lines!

It's legal. Mexico only requires a boat captain have a license (unless you are in Cabo), shore fishing is legal, no license required.

You will likely only catch small reef fish and ballyhoo or needlefish...maybe a barracuda but they are usually out much deeper.

This seems pretty definite. It's legal...You can choose to follow the advice given or ignore...
