Deo gracias! I finally had what I can call a good day's fishing!

I was able to get to IBSP in the mid-morning and saw nothing but guys leaving the beach and they all said that there weren't even dogfish biting. I went on down to where I could get access to the bay and spent almost 3 hours throwing a bucktail / teaser combo and catching schoolies of 18 to 24 inches, one 20" fluke (?!), and one hickory shad. When the fish came through they came hungry and I ended up with 15 officially caught stripers, 5 doubles, and another 4 that I didn't count because the lower fish of the double fell off while I was unhooking the other one.

One strange thing: I gave a guy who had no bucktails one of mine, same color (white), style and weight, and he fished it on a teaser rig like mine. We fished for more than 2 hours close enough to converse and he caught not one striper and only one smaller flattie of some sort. Then I even walked a couple hundred yards from him to let him spread out some, and I still caught fish and he still didn't. Go figure...
Cheers!

Since he didn't have one, did he know how to work one, obviously you did

Bay, There was only 5 or 6 feet of water. If you didn't drag it in the weeds or skitter it on the top, I'd have thought that just keeping it moving in the water for for that much time would have dumb-lucked him into at least one schoolie.
Clearly the schoolies agree with you.

Fished all over Raritan Bay yesterday in t-shirts, I'll take it for November

We landed north of 125 bass with the majority being shorts ranging from 12" to 24". We had 8 keepers on the day to 34"

We started the day off trolling around and went 0/4 on mojos and a few other missed hits. Felt like smaller fish that probably never got a good shot at the 9" shad so we switched over to casting smaller 6" shads & bucktails and that worked out well.

I don't usually fish a teaser from the boat but had one on my 8' avid so I went with it. Glad I did because I had 8 doubleheaders on the day myself including some of the keepers.

EliasV shads on a jig head or used as a trailer on a bucktail worked best overall.

And sometimes the teaser catches the bigger fish

Not sure what caused this top fish to bleed like crazy, it was hooked cleanly in the top of the mouth with a bucktail.

Two of us plugged Ocean County from 3am til 9am managing only 2 bass with one being a fat 30 inches caught on a 5" white shad. Very slow, did not see anyone else hook up.
