Mexico Fishing license Required?

I am off to the Yucatan again, I will be staying in Akumal this year at the Grand Bahia Principe. I am much more restricted finacially this year, and I am trying to see if anyone has a definative answer to the "Fishing License" Question.

In my trip last year, I fished with Pesca Maya, which was fantastic, but well out of my range this year. In days prior to the guided fishing, we explored the Sian Kaan Biosphere preserve and found deserted beaches and beautiful lagoons etc. The gentleman at the Biosphere preserve said I needed a guide, but locals we met along the way said he was full of it. It was a hard feeling watching fish cruise the crystal clear surf, girlfriend insisting on me not stringing up b/c we would get in trouble. Can I fish on my own? I get mixed answers including some guide sights that suggest that a license is now required. Is this similar to what the Bahamian Guides are attempting to limit DIY fishing?

Any information would greatly appreciated.


P.S.- hope the Acklins adventure was a blast guys!
