Before launching the boat, we made a quick pit stop at the Diary Cottage in Brookville for some fried chicken. The Diary Cottage's fried chicken has a legendary reputation. It definitely didn't disappoint, but it's the kind of food item best consumed in moderate portions. Does that mean I adhered to my own dictum? Of course not.
Bass were active -- we caught them on buzzbaits, spinnerbaits and soft plastics.
As the sun set, and darkness starting covering the landscape, I had solid smallmouth blow up on a black buzzbait. My best at Brookville. A fitting way to end a night of fishing.
