Concerns About Lake Montauk Swirl As Study Continues

“There’s nothing wrong with that damned lake,” Mr. Heath said.

If there's nothing wrong with the lake, why does Mr. Heath refer to it as "damned"?

   [damd] Show IPA adjective, superlative damned·est, damnd·est, noun, adverb –adjective

"Stuart Heath, a bayman who fishes the lake, said there are about six men who make their livings entirely off the lake’s shellfish."

At $0.20 to $0.25 per clam wholesale and each man considering they are single with no family would need to earn at least $40K/year to cover their living expenses (at the very minimum) that's between 160,000 to 200,000 clams per man per year.

Multiply that by "about six men" that amounts to 960,000 to 1,200,000 clams a year being harvested out of the lake.

Do the math. Is that really possible? No wonder why baymen are a dying breed. Can anybody really make a living clamming in the lake other than the heir of a wealthy jazz musician who goes clamming for a hobby make a living? Let alone own a race car?" Apr 19, 11 10:41 PM

Lake Montauk Study Gains Steam

Doesn't everyone who knows Jay Fruin know he is one of those typical guys who's always been here before you, caught more clams then you, caught more fish then you no matter what it is he's better than you, blah, blah, blah? Same story, different day. Isn't it funny its coming from a guy that grew up up west and whos only legacy "as a local" is because he married a local woman? Jay Fruin tells Stuart Heath that he's been here longer what a joke. Percy (God rest his soul) and his family were here for ages and everyone knows that. When did Jay Fruin start paying taxes in this town?" Apr 27, 11 9:35 PM
