No. Shore report- Big bait-small fish

Last night , last 2 hours of light I fished an ongoing blitz in Beverly.
The cove was packed wall to wall with huge bunker to 3 inches. There was another school of 3-4 inch bait there as well ( olive on top over silver body but only as wide as a finger?) Anyone know what that is? There were small stripers thwacking it and Grego and I managed a couple. Too much bait and we were wading. Of course we both own boats and left them home due to limited time.
There were ~ 6 boats and 3 kayaks on the schools. They did better than us as we were walled in with bait, literally. Everyone who caught landed 19-20 inch stripers. NO BIG FISH! I am personally in fear of the striper stocks crashing as I (and everyone else I know) have observed a year of ONLY small fish.
