Thanks Chris I am gonna try and make it down to see you in Jan to pick up some jigging/chunking setups.
Hopefully I will be all rigged up and ready for the feb Tuna run. We plan on trying to get in 5 or six trips before spring.
Steve The furthest I have been is Ram Powell and in the 15 or so times I have been out there day or night time I don't recall seeing anything to the south are you sure it's only 8 or 9 miles to Horn Mtn?
Went back and checked, mine is set up for NM I was using the kml file from capcoe, so at 14 nm it would be hard to see Horn Mountain from Ram Powell depending on how high off the water your bridge is and how much visibility and how tall Horn Mountain is.
Sunday afternoon I could the Emerald building from about 17 nm from Perdido Pass. Visibility was good and it is 30 stories tall. Not sure how tall Horn Mountain is.
You can calculate how far away you should be able to see an object. First calculate the distance to Horizon (1.17 X sqrt (eye height)) plus objects distance to horizon (1.17 x sqrt(object height), say your eyes or 9 ft off water and the rig is 100 ft tall, (3.5 +11.7) you should be able to see the top of the rig at around 15 NM. Obviously it all depends on visiblity and in my case the ability to see. Just a little triva to pass the time, I really need to go fishing, been on dry land way too long.:thumbup:
