Guadalupe Notice

Notice to all anglers fishing with us this year. At this time we are awaiting our permits to fish Guadalupe Island. Any trip fishing the Island will incur fees to clear customs in both the U.S. And Mexico as well as permit fees and broker fees. Current trips pay about $140 dollars for Mexican fishing license and Visa, and there will be additional fees (to be announced) when going to Guadalupe Island. It has been a long process and we hope everyone understands the new charges for going to the Island. If you have any questions please call the office. It is also very important that we get all passport information from all passengers well ahead of time as the paperwork in very extensive for these trips. Thanks, the Indy Crew
