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

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
