The 06/07 tags are up for bid due to one Fisherman buying out another and when that happens the State reduce's the tags and certificates by 22.5% The new owner takes the loss. So that makes the reduced tags illegal to be attached to a Crab Trap & Fished. So is a rare chance to get these unused Stone Crab Trap Tags. The 05-06 Tag's that I got my hands on only became up for Bid due to Hurricane Wilman. They are nice to add to any Nautical Theme and can be placed in or on Nets, Buoys, Rods, in Small Picture Frames, I have even used them on Key Chains etc, or just w ever you feel they may look good in your Maritime Decor. The ideas are endless when setting up a Nautical Theme You just run with it. We all know t is no wrong or right way to come up with a nice looking Nautical Theme. If you feel it looks good It Looks Good ! Have Fun !

If you are a TAG COLLECTOR Yes this is a Once in a life time very rare chance for you as well to own New/Unused Stone Crab Trap Tags, You can not buy these tags from the State if you wanted, They can only be bought from FWC by the Licensed SPL-RS endorsement holder/Fisherman in the amount that he or she qualifies for and to a StoneCrab Fisherman they are worth more then t weight in Gold. If you have ever seen the price of Stone Crab Claws you know what I mean. Another words to use a trap it must have a tag on it, to get the tags you must have endorsements/certificates to match the amount. The state will then make your allotted total of tags then and only then can they be purchased to work your Traps hoping to catch Crabs for the Market. Wilma cost these South West Florida Crabbers thousands lossing many traps and not being able to work at the time. As for the 2006/2007 Tags I acquired them like I said due to the reduction law on the transfer and sale from one Crabber to another. If you have any questions Please feel Free to ask, I will reply ASAP.

YOU GET (12) 2005/2006 ( Blue ) and YOU GET (12) 2006-2007) ( Yellow ) Total of 24 Tags. The last picture showing 12 Tags is How you will get yours I found that cut like that they fit in a regular letter envelope, cut from a full sheet of 80. FYI the picture frame has 40 tags in it but I have set up small nautical Frames with 3 tags and they look great as well, just needs a little arts and crafts touch to do picture frames. I am willing to work with you on smaller amounts of Tags if you like, and you can mix and match years / colors. I would ask a flat rate tag cost of .50 to .75 cents per tag depending on how many you may like to have. Lets just say I am very willing to negotiate a transaction cost with you. I do feel you would and can find a place to add them in any Nautical Theme Decor, the one 05-06 "Blue" tag you see stuck in the Fishing Net is on my own personal Theme wall I have set up. Honestly these are available for the reasons I have said and when they are gone chances are that will be it. The only other way I know of that these may be acquired would be to find used ones w a Crabber replaces them for the following year. Another words looking around on t trap storage and repair place, that 99% of the time would be private property. So I know this really is a one time chance to get Stone Crab Trap Tags in Unused and New condition. I have one more chance to get 07-08 tags only if the guy I know that has them, with Crab season coming to a close soon, what I am trying to say is he has more tags then traps. I am working on getting. That is for sure a one shot deal. But were back to Wilma and Fisherman losing Traps in that Strom. They still had to buy the tags missing traps or not to qualify for t same amount to keep up the endorsements for next year.

Thank You Enjoy !
