Flat line setup for shallow water

I'm convinced I can't boat with the family without throwing in a line. I'm usually set up for largemouth but I've been tying on a swivel with a spoon or Mepps style spinner but my line twist is ridiculous. I'm willing to dedicate a rod and reel for flatlining so please advise on pole,reel, line and tackle. Thanks

main line keel sinker 6' or 7' leader cross lock snap and spinner. replace the keel sinker with a good ball bearing swivel for the spoon.

 baitcaster works for me and I use both mono and braid for main line  mono or fluoro for leader try adding a 1/4oz split shot on the mainline side of the swivel

Great!!! I had my 1st hookup right at dusk in 10ft of water this past weekend and fought a 3lb smallie out the channel in 10ft of water. I'll be out on the water this weekend and I'll try the above out.  Thank you
