Can't really cast it,but you can fish it with very light weight ie split shots and light line. Drift it down slowly while keeping an eye on your line. Any "stops" in the nornal drift should be gently "checked" with your finger. If any weight to it, set the hook.

Why not just eat the oysters and bot worry about cleaning something that has skin like roof shingles

If your really serious about using oysters go buy a couple pairs of Ivory nylons for a dollar at Walmart. Cut into squares and place a shucked oyster in the middle of each square. Buy some thread used to tie spawn sacks, bring four corners together in the middle and tie them together to form an oyster sack similar to a spawn sack. Trim excess nylon off top and hook these onto the hook. You can do pretty much anything with them and they wont come off the hook.
