Default New To Surf Casting

I am new to surf casting for stripers. I have freshwater fished for stripers in Tennessee but I am now working in NYC and plan on surf casting this summer. I have been to Gateway National Park on Sandy hook in New Jersey and thought I would give it a try there. Any pointers and hints will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome bearhunter.

The summer can be difficult for stripers. Usually after the first week in July until September the fish go to cooler pastures.
There will be however plenty of bluefish in the surf.
The party boats switch to sea bass - fluke and Bluefish during that time period.
