Jigging for Tiles?

New to this website and have been really impressed with the wealth of knowledge by all. I came across a pic with a tile and a jig. What's your recommendation for tilefish jigging - teaser set up, etc? I'm on the Viking trip in March and have been loading up on fluke bellies, etc. but would rather put the effort into the jig arsenal. I used to be a mate in SHB and I never saw tiles come up on that fancy Japanese jig. Looks like a top assist hook only? I'm using 65 lb Braid with 30' of topshot (60 lb). I don't know how you can reach bottom with a 16 oz jig in 500 feet. Thanks!

Thanks to all for the great advice! Conditions will warrant technique and guess the kitchen sink tackle inventory will once again be transported. Looking forward to meeting folks soon to wet some lead or bait (oops, this is a Jigging forum).

Thanks again - Steve
