    I am planning a trip for 3 to 4 days from 2nd of Jan 19 to the 5th/6th of Jan 19 in Hurghada, Egypt.
    Fishing will be mostly jigging, popping and maybe some trolling between spots.

    Targets are GTs, amberjacks, dogtooth, king mackerel, groupers, mahi-mahi and other pelagics.
    We are 2 people already looking for 2-3 to join.
    Price estimate will 600-700$, this includes all your meals, drinks, trolling tackle, bait and transport from and to the of Hurghada airport.

    A bit about me. I 've been part of 360tuna since 2008. I recently moved to Montreal, Canada.
    I just started freshwater fishing this year and looking to try ice fishing this winter. I have been fishing saltwater all my life. Born on the Mediterranean I fished the Mediterranean and red sea growing up, so I am a local to these waters.

    When I started travelling I fished the East coast of the states, PV, Ensenada, Cabo San Lucas, UAE and literally every place I travelled to and could get a line in the water.
    I am also going to Salalah, Oman in Christmas if anybody wants to join or will be there at the same time.

    If you are interested don’t hesitate to contact me for more info.

    You can also fly in to Cairo Int airport and either take a 45 min internal flight to hurghada or a 5 hour bus/limo.
    For the visa its pretty simple you can get a 30-day tourist visa on arrival at Egyptian airports for a 25 USD fee.
    Other interests
    I currently live in Montreal, Canada but grew up in Egypt so if you want to visit or do some touristic sites(see the pyramids), go diving or see some cool places I can help organize that for you before or after the trip. I know it like the back of my hand.

    Do not hesitate to ask for any clarifications

    I am an angler from Hungary. Probably I will be in Hurghada in this period (12/28/18- 4/1/19). I am going alone and I decided to go there because of diving and fishing. I already have the dive center where I will dive, but I have no idea if I can join to fishing trips there... So this could be a good opportunity for me. Maybe could I join you just for 1 or 2 days?

    I have no experience in sea fishing, just freshwater fishing.
