Island Girl Charters

Fishing the Florida Keys

Get hooked on lobster, fishing, snorkeling, sunset cruises with Island Girl Charters, Marathon.

ABOUT US: HOW I GOT HERE

I have always loved the water as I grew up in Biloxi, Ms. and Ft Walton Beach, Florida. I started fishing with my brother n law when I was 6 years old. We started out on a pier then advanced to offshore on our own boat.

I have been visiting the Florida Keys since I was a teenager and it quickly became my favorite place. About 15 years ago I decided I wanted to try something new. LOBSTERING.  I began looking at YOUTUBE videos and I knew I had to try this so I booked a trip. I had my boat, my GPS, my net, and my tickle stick and my first mate Kevin. NOW, WHAT? Many locals gave us advice such as “go about 3 miles out and you can’t miss them” or “pull Kevin behind the boat with a ski rope while snorkeling, you will find them” So I pulled Kevin behind the boat at 3 knots for HOURS and HOURS for 5 days straight. We didn’t find them. On the 6th day, we found our first hole. We named it Rex Hole (after my dog) we caught a few lobsters there and even speared a grouper.

I soon began planning my next trip

Kevin and I stayed on a small rocky Island known as Pretty Joe Rock. I snorkeled around and around the island trying to catch lobster. I caught a few. We finally decided to take a charter and that was the game changer. Suddenly we were looking at holes full of lobster and also learned how to find the spots ourselves.

The next trip was a fantastic month, we caught lots of lobster. Since then we have acquired 3000 GPS locations for fish and lobster.

Loving to lobster so much, I wanted to share the experience with whoever would join us. I just love it when a friend or relative would surface with a huge smile catching their first lobster. I decided I wanted to do this even more so I got my captains license and masters and opened Island Girl Charters LLC.

*Why we formulate with MCT oil

MCT, medium chain triglycerides are partially man-made fats. The name refers to the way the carbon atoms are arranged in their chemical structure. MCT’s are generally made by processing coconut and palm kernel oils in the laboratory. Usual dietary fats, by comparison, are long-chain triglycerides. MCT oil is gaining popularity for its many health benefits.

Cannabinoids are fat soluble, meaning they break down and are stored in fat rather than water, making cannabinoids most effective when consumed with fat, increasing their bioavailability.

Saturated fats are important carriers for cannabinoids to be absorbed into the body. Coconut and palm (MCT) oil contain saturated fat at levels close to 80%, giving cannabinoids the fat cells it needs to move through the body, encouraging faster processing and also use by the endocannabinoid system.

Specifically, coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides or fatty acids. Using coconut oil or other products that contain medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oils) triggers a relatively rapid release of cannabinoids when compared to other oils because MCT oils are directly metabolized into energy by the liver.

*MCT oil benefits

For anyone concerned about blood sugar levels, inflammation, and fat burning, MCT provides a host of benefits — especially when combined with cannabidiol (CBD). It is perfect for making Bullet Proof Coffee,  or refreshing smoothies. Using MCT oil instead of Hemp Seed Oil helps to make our product have a longer shelf-life. MCT oil is known for having antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral properties.

** Marathon Chamber does NOT sell CBD Oil **

There are multiple locations in Marathon FL that sell the CBD Oil. We do not have a list yet but once we do we can update.
