2ND CASTS, created by Michael Scherer in 2016, was developed when his neighbor Paul died and his children gave him all his fishing equipment. Michael was going through and cleaning the equipment while thinking about 2nd chances and how much fishing ment to his friend and neighbor. That day 2nd CASTS was born.
This program takes in used & surplus fishing gear, cleans and tests the equipment for proper operation and then puts it back into the hands of families and kids, nature centers, state parks, 4-H Clubs, Scouting units and also places some in a 2nd CASTS garage sale to help raise funds for Family Fish Camps to keep them free for families.
Old lead weights and rubber type products that are too old to use, are sent to the proper recycling companies.
Used fishing line is removed from all reels and shipped to Berkley fishing line recycling or Blood Knot Rings where it is melted down and reused in the fishing industry.
Giving used & surplus fishing gear a second chance…

SOFT PLASTIC REMELTS – Christmas Ornaments (Sea Turtles, Redfish, Sawfish) please text 832-202-5221 for more information or visit https://www.facebook.com/2ndCASTSolutions/shop/
in January 2022, 2nd CASTolutions started collecting used soft plastic baits and created silicon molds. We remelt the soft plastics and hand pour to create Sea Turtles, Redfish, and Sawfish. These items are then used to raise money to help businesses like Sea Turtle, Inc. , Sea Turtle Conservancy, Tonya Wiley and Havenworth Coastal Conservation in Sawfish research, and Chester Moores – Kingdom Zoo Wildlife Center. Funds also helps Fishing’s Future Family Fish Camps to keep these programs free and to help purchase bait.
Just added for 2023 – Southern Flounder, 6″ Manatee, and 3.5″ Manatee
We also create small Largemouth Bass Trophies (Heads and Tails).
I would also like to thank these conservation mined lure companies, Stores, & Fly Fisherman who send us their discarded & faulty soft plastics that cannot be reused in their production.
