I'm not sure you can get an ap in Ely. I had to go down to Virginia. Might have changed since the new passport changes. Got my passport photos done at Norex.

Blake, try the county driver's license office in the county office building. Not the license/registration office, but the one where you take your license exams. They might have them, and if not will know if there's a place to get them in Ely.

I also have to think there's a government site somewhere where you could download a printable pdf version and print it out. I'd try to google it and see if that's out in cyberland somewhere.

And Ken's on the money. Kyle at Norex is the way to go for the photo. They have to be a certain size and resolution and style.

you can download the applications online. its a piece of cake. just google search passport applications and you can find it easily. remember it can take up to 3 months to get your passport unless you pay the extra fee and get it expedited.

they have directions for taking your picture and all that stuff on there.

good luck.

Since we are on the topic of passports...I have a question. Could someone clarify what the rules for driving into Canada are and what is needed? I have heard you only need a drivers license and birth certificate any fmers that can confirm this?

Thanks

Yea...all you will need is your drivers license and birth certificate for this year. Next year should be the year it is fully enacted where you need a passport, but who knows they keep putting it off. I just want to get mine now to avoid the hassle and not be getting it with thousands of others next year.

Thanks for the info everyone, ill check out the online thing...would I just mail it somewhere with birth certificate and picture then after i filled it out? It will probably tell me on the site i guess.. later,

Blake

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
