• The Blackman Fish Machine

    F/V Kalona was built in San Diego to fish the Pacific Ocean waters. The Blackman Fish Machine will get you to the fish quickly with a late model Volvo-Penta diesel engine connected to the duo-prop outdrive. During the transit, deck chairs are laid out to allow a safe and comfortable transit. When we reach the fishing area we clear the deck to work the fish once they are hooked. The large bait tank holds plenty of bait for a full day of fishing. After boating the fish, they are stowed in the large hold of ice so they stay fresh until we return to the dock.
