overline bonefish rod?

I'm doing bonefish for the first time this fall and was hoping for some advice:

To overline or not to overline?

The weapon of choice will be a 9'6" 8wt Powell Tiburon 2 which is a very fast rod.

I usually overline all of my saltwater rods for northeast salt-chuck. I have read that this is not wise for spooky bones that are tailing in a foot of water however.

Also does anyone have first-hand experience using floating coldwater lines in the tropics? I've heard mixed opinions on this as well.
