Payson bass team finishes second

It took just one nice-sized bass to propel the Mesa team of Rich Kereny and Dean Kruezen to a first place finish at a Western Outdoor News (WON) Bass Arizona team tournament held Jan. 7 at Bartlett Lake. The largemouth tipped the scales at 2.53 pounds, which not only represented the heaviest catch of the tournament but was also the “Big Fish” winner. The Payson team of Keith Hunsinger and Bobby O’Donnell caught two fish, but they weighed in at just 1.59 pounds, which was good enough for second place. WON Arizona Teams Director Tracy Purtee said following the weigh-in that O’Donnell told him, “it was ugly out there,” to which Purtee responded, “I think a lot of the anglers would agree.” Ken Howden and Gary Understiller weighed in 1.45 pounds of fish to finish third.
