Default Right Shoulder shut down

So I'm reading the recent reports of bass and blues with envy, especially since I can't get to the Cape till June 9. Orthopedist says overhead casting is out (and that's easy to comply with since it's killing me to cast overhead) and even proper sidearm casting with a surf rig is a no-no since it puts pressure on the shoulder. I need to step down a ways and use tackle I can handle with one hand and snap out there with the wrist (and maybe a little help from the left hand). But I'm willing to target schoolies and snappers if I can cast without pain. And I guess that means I won't feel obligated to fish at night, though if I can hit some jetties or estuary outflows at first light I like my chances.

Any other suggestions out there?
