I know nothing about flounder fishing but I sink my lines for surf fishing in CA. Your grain question was perfect... if we knew the rod make and model, someone here might know the best grain weight, or it might be found online. Regarding head length, 20' is awful short, but fine if that's only part of the head.

Blind casting or can you see the fish?

Like Stu, I’m on the west coast and sight fish for sole, sand dabs etc and use a intermediate line with a fly that gives a jiggy action like a clouser.

Wading, 3 to 5 feet depth.  plan on using about a 5 ft leader to keep fly down. Imitate sand fleas that bury themselves after getting washed to surface.

I have an 8 weight Sage and use a Teeny T-300 and catch Fluke in the surf with it. A Teeny T-200 would work also on your Sage 7 weight.

Both lines outperform an intermediate getting the fly in the zone sooner.
