Mark Kile teamed up with Buddy Randall to capture an AllStar Bass team tournament title May 6 at Roosevelt Lake. The duo weighed in a six-bass limit that tipped the scales at 21.07 pounds.

The Phoenix team of Frank Bennett and Tom Bond were a distant second with 15.34 pounds.

Among Kile and Randall's catch was a 5.12 pound lunker. However, it wasn't the largest bass of the day. The team of Chris Gierszewski and Robert Haynes caught a 7.45 largemouth.

Kile and Randall fished Carolina, drop-shot and Texas rigged soft plastics and a variety of topwater lures in the Tonto Creek end of the lake, said AllStar official Harry Morgan.

In winning the April 29 AllStar couples tournament, Kile and Johnna fished all around the lake in shallow water, near bushes, using jerk bait pointer minnows.

Their big fish, a 4.33 pounder, was caught on a tube lure while sight fishing.

The Kile's winning limit tipped the scales at 16.18 pounds and earned the pair $2,400.

For Kile and Randall's win, the two shared $4,450 in prize money.

The pair are the only Rim Country anglers to finish in the tournament's top-10.
