Ken Howden and Gary Understiller continue to cling to first place in the Western Outdoor News (WON) Arizona Circuit bass tournament standings even though they had to settle for a fourth-place finish in a Feb. 25 fray at Roosevelt Lake. The pair has fished all five of WON’s state tournaments this season weighing in 15 fish that tip the scales at 30.87 pounds. Their big bass weighed 6.72 pounds. The second-place team, Keith Hunsinger and Robert O’Donnell of Payson, have caught 16 fish totaling 24.54 pounds. The difference between first and second place is each pair’s “big fish” — the largest bass the Rim anglers have caught — is 2.03 pounds, about four pounds less than Howden and Understiller’s lunker.
