Sounds good in theory, but you need to be sure of the depth you fish this in (I prefer just using a long, single hook leader with a foam float to just about keep the bait off the bottom). Most people do not realize this, but having a boat with a depth finder, I have found that the water off the south shore Staten Island beaches, is very shallow, especially at low tide. I can be 1000 feet off the beach and still be in only 10-11 feet of water. Secondly, I would go with just a single hook. and change that storm sinker to a bank (rounded) sinker. It will allow for much better movement. Other than that, you seem to be ready to go. You are correct about the blues showing up. Usually though, when you see big blues, you do not see Stripers. The striper run usually begins towards the latter part of September, with October being the better month. Good Luck and have fun!!!!
