If you’re going to go surf fishing in Delaware there are some new parking restrictions.

The vehicles will not have to park single-file instead of side-by-side.

WBOC reports that Delaware officials hope that this will keep out the people who are not surf fishing.

There have been complaints from fishermen of overcrowding.

The number of surf fishing tags has jumped by 30 percent over the last half decade.

It is expected to hit 15-thousand by the end of this year.
