Hopefully someone who actually fish for them will be along with detailed answer but many times I’ve had pike strike at fish in my peg and yesterday I had a pike in my peg for a good few hours with at least 3 or 4 occasions the small roach and Rudd became flying fish ( bizarrely I hooked a 4-5 lb pike whilst retrieving my worm hookbait on my feeder gear later that evening )
I’ve seen high singles and low doubles over the years I’ve fish here, quite a few years ago there was a big female ( 20 + ) with 3 or 4 jack pike in tow ( spawning ritual ? )
Fair few pike in the Derwent at Howsham and Kirkham below the weir hooked on trotting gear winding back small fish ( also had trout and perch on minnows being retrieved ( not by design )

Sorry can’t help on that venue only paid the extra for the first time this year and been once ( not really my cup of tea but I may try Potters this winter now it’s reopened as it reportedly got some depth and a decent head of silvers )
