The constant warm temperatures in the Red Sea are ideal for a wide variety of fish. From big eye fish, king fish, snapper, and several kinds of grouper to bonito, cobia, bluefin tuna, and bgeyetun fish, the fishing is never dull. Hurghada used to be a small fishing village, and the area offers many fishing options. You can fish from the shore, stop and drop a line with bait from a boat, or troll for the big game fish. The fishermen here don’t have access to lures and fishing products, but their homemade techniques are just as efficient as anything that can be purchased in a store.
