Showtime Guide Service wants you to experience the finest fishing that Galveston Bay has to offer. They do this by letting you enjoy your fishing charter with no pressure to perform other than what your expectations are of the trip. In providing a one-on-one educational and relaxing fishing atmosphere, Captain Clint Sholmire guarantees a rewarding time!

Captain Clint is a lifelong resident of Galveston Bay with over 30 years of fishing experience here. He started fishing as a young boy with his family and has since become a professional guide who also holds seven top 10 finishes in the Texas Redfish Series and IFA Redfish Tour combined.

Using his extensive knowledge of the Galveston Bay Complex, Captain Clint is able to locate fish and pull them onto his 23’ Haynie center console very successfully. The vessel, built in 2014, is powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots.

By using the onboard Lowrance HDS12 GPS and fishfinder unit, you will locate the finest fishing spots.The boat’s speed will ensure you get from one productive spot to the next in a flash.

Though Captain Clint specializes in shallow water fishing for Redfish in West Bay, he can just as easily take you to East Bay and the Jetties where you can fish for Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and Flounder. You can also target Bull and Blacktip Sharks, and Tripletail using a variety of Castaway rods and Lew’s reels.

Showtime Guide Service includes rods, reels, tackle, bait, safety equipment including adult and kid’s life jackets, and fish cleaning service on all trips. Your responsibility will only be to obtain a Texas Saltwater fishing license and enjoy your trip. Captain Clint offer half day and full day inshore and offshore trips, so take your pick and go have fun!

About the Captain

Clint Sholmire
Texas City, Texas, United States
Member since May 2017
Captain Clint has been fishing for the last 30 years almost daily. He has entered and finished his Tournament career with a huge number of top 10's out of 50. Clint has been guiding professionally since 2001 when he decided to start sharing his passion for fishing with others and had soon established himself as the go-to guide if one wanted to catch copious amounts of Trout and other species. Just so it happens, Trout is his favorite fish to catch on artificials, and he loves topwater fishing in general.
