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. https://stripers247.com/phpBB2/viewto...1cec33dbcb2b2a

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.
