Going out tomorrow striper fishing in Raritan bay / sandy hook.
Since I never fished before should interesting - hit mojos I can troll with and also have these plastic shad baits I can throw - any other ideas

Always a good idea to have a rod rigged for snagging bunker. Some guys will snag one and just open the bail, let is slowly sink to a striper waiting for an easy meal below. I like to reel it in and rig it on a hook through the mouth or between the eyes and cast it back, getting a treble snag hook out of a female or undersize bass usually does a lot of damage to it. If you come across a school of bunker, look at your sonar to see if there's any fish below it, if so, try the snag and drop.
Wireline is very unforgiving once you kink it throw it out. The parachute rig has to be on the bottom that's why you're using wire and you have to sweep the rod back and forth like you're sweeping the floor. If that parachute rig is not banging the bottom you won't catch fish but if it is they can't resist it. Good luck.
