DOVER, Del. (AP) - The state of Delaware will be auctioning off low-digit surf-fishing tags next week.

The auction begins at 9 a.m. Thursday at www.usgovbid.com. It was authorized last year by the 147th General Assembly though House Bill 48. The bill directed the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to begin selling the low-digit tags to the highest bidder, with proceeds benefiting the Division of Parks and Recreation and Delaware State Parks.

Fewer than 100 of the highly sought low-numbered tags will be sold this year. The minimum bid for purchasing a tag is $250.

State Environmental Secretary David Small says the agency historically sold numbered surf-fishing license plates, but later switched to non-numbered plates with annual registration stickers - making numbered surf tags a relic of the past.
