Pike fishing on a coloured river

With the influx of rain yesterday, I decided that roving the miles was the order of the day. I was dropping a poor man's mackerel (aka bluey) into each likely spot, hoping that the high oil content leaking out would get me a bite, and I was fishing slack areas of water.

The river was not up much but chocolate coloured, and not the best conditions. After half a dozen likely swims, I got a take off this pike, nothing big but i was very please to hook something in these conditions.

I decided to switch to lamprey after a while, and hooked a very decent chub, which unfortunately got off after a spirited fight.
Nothing else to report, but a good morning exercise!
