Hi npike
Glad your aboard. That set up seems fine for what your doing. You may want to upgrade the line to 20 pound test. Not entirely necessary though. Also have a look at this thread.

It has an approach to catching a striped bass. Well more of a primer on how to set up.
Bring those freshwater skills to the surf. Then the only thing left to do is find a spot where they are lurking.

Once you hook into a rather large fish you'll want to go back bigger loaded for bear. Good luck.
Baits in Maine are probably mackeral and cut herring at that time.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
