Just head up for next time that's an over slot fish. Measure to pinched tail on reds, not the fork.

Definitely a nice fish, but like Splittine said, watch the measuring next time. I don't know how FWC is down here, but in VA, the Marine Police trolled the forums and facebook pages looking for poachers and would use anything like this to convict them. I might take the photos down if it were me.

Also to get a true measurement the tape needs to be under the fish. The bend in the tape can mess you up. And yeah you have to pinch the tail all the way and measure from the tip of the nose to the furthest of the tail. I had to release a few because they were just a bit over slot because of the pinched tail.
