Best spin cast set up for specs under birds

Wondering if anyone has advice on best set up with spin cast equipment for fishing specs under birds. I was fishing the Cypremore Point Cove area with 'bait cast' equipment as I have always done in the past. I had made my cast shooting for distance as to not spook the fish by getting too close with the boat. Wind was blowing just a bit and I experienced several 'professional overruns' (lol). There were other fisherman fishing the same set of birds, but I noticed 2 guys had 'spin cast' setups with what looked like 7.5 ft rods. I just know those guys were casting a mile compared to my bait cast rig. They were hauling in specs on almost every cast as there corks were landing right on top of the fish
. If anyone has experience with spin cast set ups that they like, I'd appreciate some tips...I'm trying to find out line brand & size, spinning reel & rod details if possible. I tried to 'search' on this site, but was not successful. Thanks in advance for any helpful information.

Since I own~ 20 bait cast rigs of varying age, I think 1 spin cast rig for starters would be good for me. Since I haven't priced any, I suppose I would start around $300.

shimano stradic ci4 3000 with a 7.2 medium action rod. I like a gloomis greenwater. One combo for all. when it gets a little windy i dont even use the baitcaster unless i am drifting and casting into the wind.

7' medium fast rod is good and Stradic Ci4 is also a good choice. Next is line choice, I use Braid with a Fluorocarbon leader. Power Pro Slick 20# will cast a lot further than most lines. I have landed 10# Reds and 15 # Jacks on this line.
