Default Oil Rigs?

How would you guys categorize oil rigs in a risk reward sense? I'm in louisiana, gonna be fishing near shore rigs all weekend and wana get in there with a gun and look around... Oil rigs have tons of tax collectors there and was just looking for some insight from da mo experienced folk. Thanx in advance !

I'd do it in a second. Never had the opportunity yet, but they're hard to beat in terms of production.

Honestly I cut my teeth spearfishing on oil rigs... I have now transitioned to spearing on natural bottom... If you can get out there though to the rigs there's nothing like it

I'd suggest reading this book. Even if you decide not to spearfish the rigs it's a great read - http://www.amazon.com/The-Helldivers-Rodeo-Scuba-Diving-Oil-Platforms/dp/0871319365/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403317568&sr=8-1&keywords=hell+divers+rodeo
