Default Salt dome Horseshoe rigs

Going to the salt dome/ old horse shoe rigs saturday(heard the big yellow have arrived). Doing an overnighter as well. Need some recommendations.. We typical stay overnight at Na Kika or the drill ship close by. I understand Elf is closer to shoes then Nakika. Should we stay the night there or just stay on the dome? Or any other recommendations...(anyone know if there is a drill ship close bye). Thanks

It is around 250 ft in the middle of the horseshoe rigs. Good bottom fishing in that middle area lots of mingos. I commercially fished those salt domes 30 years ago. Sometimes monster cobia are around the rigs even in the winter. Good luck make sure you report back on results and some pictures of the rigs.

Coordinates to the Matterhorn are 28.743 N 88.826 W. If you don't have Hiltons the offshore rigs/floaters/drillships are listed on NOAA.

I'm dying to know if anyone went, and if the big ones were there! I'm ready to get back out there.
