The Conger demands respect - use a strong rig - a wire trace or 60-80lb mono coupled with a large fish bait e.g. whole mackerel or herring.

As you will be fishing over rocky, rough ground it's a good idea to use either a pulley rig or running leger with a rotten bottom and a wire trace. Unless you are alive to the situation and wind like mad, a Conger will drag your tackle into a rocky crevice or snag from which you will be unlikely to move them.
