Gus, I know 3 yr. olds have no fin clip, just haven't seen any that are nearly 23".
I know what you mean John, but it's not the fishes fault, it's the "bums" that rip their lips off. (Even though it's impossible to prevent all hook wounding.)
I took the day off and brought Tessie up with my 14 year old son. landed a 3 salmon and 1 rainbow all released. It took awhile to find the right color db's and depth, (it didn't help that my fishing partner was more interested in texting his girlfriend than changing lures lol) but we had a good day anyways. most productive was purple and copper db on downrigger at 28'. Going up next weekend with my wife for our anniversary.
