Not to be a prick here... but I caught mine the first day of winter. It only took about 5 or 6 casts with a lvl 3 rod to get a bite.
My advice, save right before you leave for the Pond. If you don't catch it within a reasonable amount of time, just reload and try again. I caught mine around 3am, but I didn't leave my house until 9pm...
I upgraded my rod to copper and it was at level three.It took me almost all night to catch it,but I caught it on my thrird try.And if It helps,you might want to try fishing in the middle of the left side of the pond.
