Bass fishing has become a billion plus dollar industry and Largemouth Bass in particular are one of the most sought after in North America.

This fun design parodies the Salvation Army, known for being extremely anti-gay. The basic shield in a calming blue, rather than the angry red, stands out during the holiday season.

The daring types might want to carry wind chimes to drown out the nasty bell ringers.
