Best rod and reel for surf shark fishing..?

I live in the Gulf Coast in Pinellas Co. and I’m wanting to get into shark fishing. Im looking at catching sharks in the 5-6 foot range. I have no means of getting the bait out with a kayak or anything so I was thinking a spinning reel. I know most use conventional but how would I get the bait out? Can you suggest a good spinning reel that can hold about 500 yards of 50 lb braid? Also if you can suggest a way to get the bait out what would a good conventional reel be? For the spinning reel I’m looking for a 2 piece rod that can get the bait out far enough, any ideas?

what is a good reel to go with this rod (shark fishing)?

Good small fishing pole with reel that isnt a crappy spider man pole?

Im looking for a small fishing pole that can still catch a big fish. I need it for when im on my kayak so it needs to be small and easy to cast.
