Reckon Jason's on the money, location is the key to the name differences.Squidder said:In Victoria most folks call them Bass Yabbies. But I've also heard them called nippers. I reckon it depends on where you're from.
Just like juvenile snapper are called pinkies, squire, rugger and red bream in different parts of Australia :wink:
I started with nippers in Port Macquarie and went to yabbies on arrival here, it's one of the easy ways to pick a visiting angler on the GC
