In march I am staying near BIQ airport, and am taking the 641 am train from Bayonne to SJPDP. It appears that bus transportation from BIQ area to Bayonne doesnt start early enough. So is my best/only option to call a taxi at like 530 am to go from my hotel near the airport over to the bayonne train station?

Why don't you stay the night near the train station in Bayonne? You can get a bus directly from Biarritz airport to the train station in Bayonne. Then you walk to the station in the morning!

Change your reservation!!!!

What C Clearly is saying above makes absolute sense. The Biarritz Airport is equi-distant to Biarritz and Bayonne. It's a very quick local bus ride, or cheap taxi ride into Bayonne from the airport, and then you have no hassle in the morning. In March, there will be no problem whatsoever finding a hotel room in Bayonne.

This is a no-brainer!!!!!

Changing the reservation is not an option so no, it is not a nobrainer

Simplest solution is change reservation to accomodations near Bayonne.

2nd easiest is catch a later train. There are 4 or 5 daily.

I was hoping to stick with the early train so i could start my walk that day too, I am not staying in sjpdp the next night (yes I know it's a beautiful place but that is not part of my purpose)

There are two early morning trains from Biarritz station to Bayonne station, getting you there in time for your SJPdP connection. I also stayed at a (the?) hotel near the airport. The train station is about a half hour walk or a 5 minute taxi ride.
