A late season September trip brought some regulars on the Nomad. With their trip the previous year being hard to top we decided to hoist the sail and head for the southern tip of the Mentawai Island chain. With the islands starting to empty out and a south pulse in the swell this decision paid off.

After long days in the water it, the afternoons consisted of being ontop of the water with the fishing being on point, breaking Boomerang records. A total of 30 quality fish caught on the trawl this trip. Not too many afternoon surf sessions were getting done as it was all about the esky being full of ice-cold bintangs, watching the sunset waiting for the rods to scream.

A great trip to be a part of and a great way to wrap up my season.

On the Nomad it’s been a great year of surfing/ fishing all around.

Signing off for 2017, Captain Jake.
