Background
Having had a love of fishing for over 40 years, and owning my own aluminum boat, I came across an opportunity to buy a charter boat. So, with a life style change and relocating to the Bay of Islands in New Zealand, my wife and I bought Target Charters about 14 years ago and continue to operate in the Bay.
