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

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
