I have a motorized wagon for sale after you get all this stuff, first Striper ... 9 rod or better, good reel with braid, Id hope for bunker and have a snag rig, but more than likely have a nice teaser rig tied to a tactical clip and change out as the sun rises Danny/Needle/poppers, then subsurface/ then diamond jigs or other nice expensive metals or epoxies Ava 17 and such, good luck!!

Black bomber is a necessary item for night!

Wow, thanks for all the tips and info guys!!! No matter what happens, its going to be a great day. Haven't had a full day on the water in quite some time due to work.

Gonna be picking up a whole bunch of lures for this trip. I really only have kastmasters and a few white bucktails, so i really appreciate all the suggestions!! Tight lines boys, I'll let you know how i do!

Yes Black Bomber would be on my short list for fishing at night.....

If you plan on using poppers you need to know how to work them, you don't simply cast out and reel them in, you pop them... Cast out, come tight on your line with the tip up and a quick swipe of your rod tip to the side.... Come tight again and pop it... You'll know when your working it right when you see a splash out in front of the lure as you pop it..

Also, don't get married to one spot and make sure your'e mobile and ready to move if you see working birds or Bunk.. For this reason I would also recommend you keep a bunker snag handy... If you see Bunker, cast out and snag one, put your reel in free spool and let it swim around. I would also have some heavy medal lures like an AVA or a crock. The reason I say this is they cast a mile and you may need to have something a little extra heavy to get to where the birds are working.

Best of luck and hope you get a shot at them....

I caught 1 18" striper on an Ava A17 in 48 trips to the Manasquan Inlet north jetty this year and didn't see another one caught.

Far Rockaway Inlet was filthy with them today - 50' of water and they were gorging on sand eels.
