I left my house at 03:40 and started fishing before the sun rose. I could not get even one bite for about one hour, so I moved to an inlet area of the pond where I expected cooler water. I long-cast a Chugger Spook (purple scale color) and slowly retrieved it. Then, when I quickly changed the speed of dog-walk actions (faster tempo), this fish (3-1/2 lb, 48cm) pounced on it like a savage beast just before my eyes. I guess she responded reflexively to my actions. I kept fishing for another couple of hours, but I got no more hits and bites.
