go with a 9 wt. better for the jersey beaches. intermediate and a sink tip (400-500) gr. lines. poppers, baby bunker, decievers, clousers, in chartruese and white, blue & white. Don't forget the black for night. 6ft of 30,40,or 20 lb line for leader should work.

6 or 7 or sometimes 8 is all you need for fly fishing the surf.
You will only catch 15" to 20" fish, so the lite rods are much more fun.
The big stripers are caught in boats "chunkin" with cut dead bait and a 8oz sinker with heavy tackle. The big gals are lazy scavengers and won't chase a streamer near shore.
The spin guys use a "teaser" above their metal lures and catch most on the teaser. A teaser is only a small, weightless streamer.
Also when you use small streamers and lite tackle, you will catch flounder, herring, sea robbins, blues, and a lot of nice fighting size striped bass.

Wow Rick, are you going to get suprised someday !
I've caught 40 lb. stripers in the surf, and a few 20-25 lb fish every year

Yeah sure.. The lightest I go for the baech is a 8 wt. in the bay areas. maybe on the west coast you can use light stuff but here in the east you'd better have bigger stuff all the way up to a 12 wt. I use 9, 10 and 12 wts. for jersey.
