    Bob Rose at Bob's Bait & Tackle in Amity Harbor reported the striper action was good on the weekend with diamond jigs accounting for action near the FI Light. Anglers also trolled up fish between FI and Jones with Mojo and Bunker Spoons. The West Bar also produced a lot of action on the snotty days with clams accounting for plenty of keepers and some larger fish. Blackfish are still available at all the bridges and wrecks inside the bay, and the outside pieces. Green crabs on jigs or standard bottom rigs have worked well.
