Floating, intermediate and full sink lines all work--floating is most preferred for sight fishing BUT
the water often has a strong surf break and/or is murky-so you wind up blind casting--and to beat the waves and to get out deeper, sinkers and intermediates work well. Indeed in summer you often see big females tailing/drifting nose down surrounded by smaller males well off the beach(20-50 yards)-you may have to wade out a bit to reach them, and when they strike it tends to be a reaction strike to a fly placed under them--long casts and sinking lines work for these--don't believe that Sanibel flyfishing requires being up on the sand--ask Norm Zeigler at his shop about his new"nymphing" method which involves wading..
