Golden Tiles aren't too difficult as a starting species. Just get out in water over say 600-700 and drop down with squid/bostom macks. Attach a mini strobe light to top of deep drop rig and stay as clos to bottom as possible. You will find small ones and some bigger ones mixed in.

This is terribly important, and not mentioned too often.
Lots of folks just drop down, get tight and don't touch the reel again.
I'll constantly feel the bottom, dropping the lead down every 20- 30 seconds making sure I am still in the right area.
I also think the commotion from the weight hitting the mud attracts fish.


Use the lightest weight possible to keep the line vertical.

What do tiles prefer, structure? Drops? Natural bottoms?

Tiles prefer mud bottom so there generally won't be something to mark on the sounder. I will also throw in that until you bulls eye in on a spot loaded with fish, you want to drift and cover ground.

This. Tiles bury in the mud then ambush prey. This is a sand tile but same deal.

If you're targeting tiles, get a big split ring and use it to connect a weight ~1/3 the size of your bottom lead to the swivel at the top of the leader. This changes the angle of the leader and puts more baits near the tilefish, which are in the bottom.
