They are in the clinch too.
I was fishing near the jail with my old preacher in the early 90s and while bringing in a small trout, a striper grabbed it and proceeded to run downstream, taking him quickly into his backing. He had to tighten the drag down and break it off. I'd guess he was using no more than a 6wt.

They are pretty good to eat if prepared right.
