Honestly, even "cuttie" doesn't bug me when spoken, though I hate it when written (I generally believe in more, rather than less, formality in the written word). Similarly, I'd venture a guess that most every cutthroat fisherman that has spent significant time chasing them has said "wow, that's a beautiful cutt" at least a few times over the years. In BC they talk about "cutties". A lot. It's human nature to truncate when speaking. By contrast, SRC just seems completely contrived and silly to me; like Leland said, is anyone really going to refer to fishing for es-ar-see's when talking to a buddy? I don't know, maybe... people do talk about heading to "the OP", (or BC... see above) so who knows. SRC still sounds and feels disrespectful and/or trivializing to me.
