The video shows the catch by two members of the sport fishery team while using two different fishing methods; long line and hook and line.

Hamata is the most southerly diving resort in Egypt’s Red Sea; situated about 180 km south of Marsa Alam, and about 360km south of Hurghada. Recently, Hamata is quickly becoming one of the southern Red Sea’s finest attractions. The mangroves attract a wide variety of birds all year round, with many more passing by during migration times.

Hamata is one of the best dive sites in the Red Sea. Similarly, Hamata could be one of the best fishing locations in the Red Sea region. Along with the great coral life there is the chance to see a variety of marine life including Barracuda, Dolphins, Turtles, Napoleon Wrasse, Reef Sharks, Stingrays, Moray Eels, Pipefish and even the occasional passing Whale Shark or Manta Ray.
