    My español needs work. However, I wanted to make sure that this is indeed the Biosphere Band/Pass (Annual) That everyone is talking about.......

    If you have one or in the know, can you confirm that this is it?

    Yeah, it's fairly easy to do online as well and way cheaper than $5 a pop each time. I've also purchased my annual Mexico fishing license online for $42.89.

    Nice! I got my Mexican Fishing License online this year too! Saves bucks, that’s for sure.

    So, oh da shiz I figured the Biosphere Pass website translating words I didn’t know (almost all of them-ha ha).....I can log on and off and bring up my son’s and my pass.......

    However, I can only print it out 8.5” x 11”.........

    Was told it needed or was supposed to be a badge. Is this true? One person told me that they got theirs at Anglers Choice where they processed and laminated it for them.....

    Could you get yours to badge size or is this unnecessary?

    Thanks

    When I printed mine, went to the print options and scaled it down to something like 30% and it came out badge sized. One thing to note, if you print the front and back pieces on the same sheet of paper they can get off center, so I printed each on a separate sheet and then stuck them back to back.

    Hope this helps!

    No clue, I definitely considered pitching it out too to be honest

    I shrunk it down and printed it out (front & back) shoved in a folder I keep on the boat. Not sure yet if there'll be an issue since I haven't been checked yet.

    Hey Tyler,
    Would you mind shooting a pic front and back? I’ve got a laminator enroute via Amazon. I’m gonna try and make my own badge.

    Also, I plan to laminate all docs since the marine environment is brutal. Even though I have a “biatchin” waterproof pouch, I’m finding my Ink-Jet docs I’ve printed from last year are starting to run a bit.....

    Well. Hopefully the Mexican Navy will be impressed with my efforts of laminating every document for their inspection. Even though all are in a waterproof pouch, the sea air still is able to make the ink in the inkjet run....

    I couldn’t figure out how to downsize the Biosphere Badge so I laminated both sides together on 8.5x11.....

    I laminated our:
    Mexican Fishing Licenses
    Boat and Trailer Registration
    Copies of Passports

    Hopefully there is no rule that says you can’t laminate these docs like the silly rule about social security cards....

    And hopefully these officials will find it easier to check our Biosphere Docs in a bigger format.

    Anyone need some laminating done? LOL :emoji_joy:
