Firstly if you don't want smelly baits just use Endeavour or Banana prawns... Prawns will catch fish from the beach no issues.
Rod - Wilson is a quality and durable rod, but that rod may be big heavy over time so it will depend on how long you plan to fish from the beach on a session.
My recommend rod a travel 3 piece rod thats 2-4kg if you are just surf fishing gutters. Something like a Shimano Raider Travel Spinning Rod 2-4 / 5-8kg 3 piece would be a good guideline. The heavier rod would enable you take larger fish if you wanted too...
Reel - I love the Sphereos and its bigger brother the Saragosa. But a 5k off the beach is a bit excessive. Also the reel is a heavy reel for standing on the beach hours on end. Understand why you went that way since you want to use mono which doesn't fit much on a smaller reel (2-3k).
Two things to consider
1. If you want to go mono i would recommend go the new lighter Alveys
2. If you don't mind switching to braid. Go a 4k Ultegra Shimano or a 3k Caldia Daiwa. Both reels a much lighter but have respectable capacity for braid
Lures - Lures are built to capture the fisho... So don't get to fancy on them unless you are a gear junkie... I would recommend a Halco Twisty to start, a Daiwa double clutch diver for inlet beaches for flathead (it's a light lure so recommend for a 2-4 rod), Gilles surf popper, Rapala X-Rap XR8 etc...
Get a shoulder bag a small tackle box and go have some fun mate!
