I can't think of a single water where I haven't caught Pike on Lamprey, that includes pits, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, drains and broads.

Popping a bait up or not often depends on what sort of bed there is on the water you are fishing. If the bed is silty, or there is a lot of weed, pop it up. If it is hard and clear, don't bother.
Lamprey ooze blood all day long,and pike will usually find them no matter what.
