Del. Begins Auction Of Low-Digit Surf Fishing Plates


Delaware low-digit surf fishing plates will be auctioned starting today (Monday at 9:00 a.m.).

According to the Department of Natural Resources, 15 tags with numbers of interest will be available. The minimum bid for a low-digit surf fishing plate is $250.

The Delaware General Assembly authorized a bid system for prized low-numbered plates in 2015. DNREC said the program has raised more than half-a-million dollars, and all proceeds directly benefit Delaware State Parks.

Low-digit plates will be auctioned between today and December 9th. Annual surf fishing permits are expected to go on sale this winter.
