I used to walk along with a mate lure fishing and we would leap frog all the way down river for a mile or two searching every stretch. One thing that stood out from a pretty featureless river was that we would hit a pack of pike together in a 10 or 20 yard area usually by reeds.

We'd get one on the first or second cast and usually 5 or 6 more would follow sometimes up to 10 fish.

Then quiet again for maybe 200 yards then hit another holding spot. No obvious reason for them to be where they were except a few reeds to hide in.

So my suggestion would be to go with another lure angler and search twice the amount of area and share the hot spots !

might be an idea to ring the local tackle shop bud, or even better pop in there on the way to the venue and get a proper heads up. the man selling gear and bait will be the man who knows.
