This surf-fishing tag is among those to be auctioned.

A dozen low-digit Delaware surf-fishing tags are being auctioned off.

The auction runs through Dec. 9 on six specific tags – numbers 25, 105, 206, 416, 451 and 469 – and six “choice” categories. The highest bidder in each choice category (for example, 51-200) can choose a number, if not already sold, within that category. 

The minimum bid is $250, and the cost can easily escalate. In a 2019 auction, the choice in the 51-200 category went for $4,000.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control auction benefits Delaware State Parks, a DNREC unit that is 65% self-funded.

These tags have captured some of the long-time allure that Delawareans have for low-digit tags for the motor vehicles. Aaron Dunphy, for instance, runs a business brokering the sale of motor vehicle tags. And Jordan Irazabal just wants to photograph them.

By state law, surf-fishing tags numbered 1 through 200 are limited to vehicles registered in Delaware. Likewise, the first three vehicle tags are reserved for state officials.

Details about the surf-fishing auction are on a DNCREC FAQ.
