    Maybe IÕm just trying too hard to kill two birds with one stone (get that rock bass some more respect and coin a new term), but I like it for a couple reasons.

    1) like the rock bass it they are not glamorous (except around thanksgiving when everyone looks forward to those recipes coming out of the woodwork (literally)).

    2) a large rock bass has about (but not quite)the same volume as a large yam (that would be one nice rockie!)

    maybe IÕm not giving it enough credit? Can someone think of something slightly larger than a yam that fits its ÒpersonalityÓ?

    while we are on the topic:

    slabs Ð large crappies (perhaps used for large gills, etc at times?)

    sowbelly Ð large (spawning) largemouth

    football Ð a very large smallie

    dinks Ð small fish of any species.

    spikes Ð see dinks.

    I know IÕm missing some here, please clue me in!

    I guess I just want to someday be able to say "went out last saturday caught 3 slabs, 2 yams, and a football!" :D

    i'm not really looking for nicknames of other species, but rather "large specimens" of them

    oh yeah also a large rock bass would "kinda" have the same shape as a large yam! (just like a large smallie "kinda" has the same shape as a football and a large crappie just "kinda" looks like a "slab"
