Not quite sure if the stripers are around the IBSP/Seaside area just yet.

Try reading this post a little bit.

http://njsaltwaterfisherman.com/forums/index.php?topic=3964.0

Has lots of useful information that will help very much in finding where to throw your line.

Other then that, use small bits of clams on high-lo rigs with small hooks. 6/0 hooks should be sufficient. Good luck.

Welcome  greeting
If you head out that way, stop at Grumpy's or Betty & Nick's on the way and they'll put you on the right path.
Good luck.  Make sure you report back. thumbs up

First welcome to the site.  You have found the best and friendliest fishing sites out there.

As far as fishing IBSP, it is starting to heat up out front with a handful of stripers being caught.  Right now the best offering that local B&T's have are clams.  Use small pieces and smaller hooks than usual 3/0 to 5/0 with 5/0's the choice right now.  If you can find or make your own Hi - Lo rig that seems to work the best for now.

Will you be driving on or parking in one of the lots and walking on?

I also will be going out there on Thursday it looks like.

Happy Catching

Paul

Indeed there are a few bass being caught out front. Most bass have been caught on clams or worms but a few keepers have been caught on plugs as well. It's starting.

What size rod did you crack?  3oz isn't that heavy.  Sounds like it might have been a fault in the rod.  If you are going to be fishing IBSP or the Jersey Coast in general, I recommend getting to know the local Bait & Tackle Stores.  They are a wealth of information and rods that are warrantied can be brought right to them.  Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops are great, but always a long ride for most people.

Good luck?

That rod is rated up to 3oz, so it should have handled a 3oz popper.  Could have been a fault in the rd.

You should be happy with the Tica.  thumbs up

PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL out there!!!  I know you are new to surf fishing, but I don't know what kind of experience you have with the ocean.  With the high winds from the storm, they are forecasting 7-10 foot waves along with higher tides.  The beach is already very unstable from the last storms and the pounding it took this winter.  There is also a lot of debris, large branches and wood in the surf.  Make sure your footing is stable and the waves are clear.  It only takes a split second in surf like this to get knocked down and sucked in the wash.

I am not discouraging you from going, but just be very cautious and aware of the strength the ocean has.  Not to mention how cold the water still is...since you work in Trauma Medicine you are probably well aware of this.
