Yes, you are correct. "Cast" is an irregular verb that is written and pronounced exactly the same in all tenses.

It's grammatically okay ("cast" being fine in all the tenses), but logically it is not a very compelling sentence (unless you have recently returned to civilisation and you are describing what happened to you).
Also "3" should be "three" in most written forms.
