While the original all­-wood 50­-foot Lazybones was replaced with a spiffier fiberglass 55­-foot number in 1997, Capt. Vegessi has stuck with the concept he’s had since first launching his biz in 1985: two half­-day trips—specifically for fluke in the summer and bass/blues (by diamond­-jig) in the fall—in (mostly) calm, local waters. You’ll want to give Kathy a call beforehand; the easygoing formula, beautiful boat and strong “finding fish” track record is popular with seasoned anglers and first­-timers alike.
