Baitcaster or spinner for saltwater lure fishing?

I,m going to Carpus Christi TX next week and am going to try my luck in the bays there for sum spotted sea trout and red drum. All i have is a little ugly stick for trout so its time for a heaver reel and rod. I plan on using med size lures in particular poppers, so would a small low profile bait caster be good, or will this not cast med size lures and should i get a heaver spinning reel. Thanks for all the help I,m new to heaver type fishing wish me luck!
