Default Red letter day 4/25

Started out slow, 14" at 5:45 nothing till 8:30, then a 15", a few minutes later a13,14 & a short. Few minutes later 2 more shorts and a 16". Lost 3 in surf. Then my brother caught a 21", 3#10oz. Wives showed up, another 16 & a 14".
Ended up with 8, lost 4, and 4 dinks. Best day in the last couple years for me.

Ive read recently that pomps are measured to the fork in FL and the entire length of the fish in Alabama. Is this true? If so, how do I interpret fishing reports when the state is rarely given and usually there is no indication about whether its fork length or not?
