The Story of the Oak Island is fascinating to say the least, However in the "Original" story, the "boys" saw a light in the forest of Oak Island one night, the next day they found a depression in the ground near an oak tree that had a limb removed above it. To me this solves the question as too to whether or not there is a treasure there. IMO the lights were of the party retrieving whatever was buried there.

My Father told me about oak island when I was a 10 year old boy, (I'm 55 now, and also from Michigan) he thought a double tube would solve most of the problems with flooding. ( say a 10 foot diameter capped tube inside a 15 foot diameter tube, like putting your thumb on the top of a straw and pushing the straw into a drink)

My personal feeling is that what ever was there was gone long ago and we just see the remnants.

I watch this show when I can, but I like to live on the edge, otherwise, your taking up too much space.

1 thing I am sure of.. They do love cliff hangers....

Every week is OOOOOHHHH almost there, oops.. nope.

That said I watch it every week just hoping this is the week. IF they did find something it must be one heck of a gag order
for them to be silent and nothing leak for this long. Filming ended in what sept or oct?

If there ever was any treasure there,it's most likely that Samuel Ball the slave boy found it as it would be the only way he could ever afford to buy nearly half of the island.

Last night show had them finding a railroad spike in the swamp.

Yes it was a railroad spike not a ships spike.

It certainly looked like a railroad spike. It was also very well formed for the purported time of manufacture and seemed newer than they would have us believe. The expert on ships said it was a deck spike but deck spikes have a symmetrical head centered on the body and not an offset like the spike shown.

How come last year when they tried to drain the swamp,it filled itself up again as quickly as they emptied it? But this year in just a couple of days,they drain it so completely it starts drying up according to the voice over guy? To me the refilling bit was done to push the agenda that there are forces at work protecting the alleged treasure that we don't understand,but now they're running out of fresh ideas to keep the show alive so magically they are now able to drain it and keep it drained.

I agree on the spike being for the railways.It seems odd that if there was shipwreck buried under the swamp,they would have found a LOT more evidence of it by now than one deck plank (it's definitely a plank anyway) and one rusty nail/spike.Like a lot of their little offshoot plots,it'll be the last we hear about this for a while until they find they're short of dramatic music events to fill their hour long slot.

Oh and finding from a random library book that Dan McGinnis is related to Captain Kidd really is stretching reality close to breaking point!

Agreed.. My guess is he found a chest with a buncha loot. You dont go from cabbage farmer to owning half the island.

The mystery is great. The show for its flaws is very entertaining. Just knowing human nature, there is no way they found anything substantial this season.

No question someone would of leaked it.

The show is about to be over, they will find gold, is been hints of it now and then.

The mystery of snake Island was the same, after 3 seasons and many archeological discoveries they found part of the Inca gold where from the beginning it was legend said it was going to be, under some waterfalls caves.

I see the same happening in Oak Island, they have been showing glitter for some time in murky waters.

Except when they actually go down into any of the "aquifers" and all they find is natural caves and muck.

Qudo's to the diver that's been going down in these pits. That alone is amazing to watch. But its getting old. Reality is, every season up until now has been a complete waste. How many different idea's have been thrown on the table? How many have been disproved. Its a smorgasbord of ideas at this point with no real direction.

I at this point, watch the first 10min and the last 10min. Everything in the middle is crap.

This is the result of jamming a 30 minute program into a multi-season series. Padding the script and leaving the audience wondering what amazing things will be found next week after a cliff hanger ending is advertising revenue.

If that is what it takes to fund the millions of dollars required to dig this up, and not have to spend your own money, than so be it. I think it is genius on behalf of the brothers.

And, some nice paychecks for all of those involved, as well !

Agreed.

I did that from the start of the season then wen't down to only watching the last segment of the show which is about 10-15 minutes.

Now I'm down to only watching the first 10 minutes of the season finale and the last 15 minutes of the season finale . After that I'm out.

They have exceeded my annoying tolerance level with how they constantly repeat themselves or go on some BS wild chase.

I can't take no more WHAT IF, DID THEY, COULD IT HAVE . For your Gods sake , the only thing they have left to speculate on is if it was a reptilian Nazi mason from the dark side of the moon.

Maybe all those years ago,Dan McGinnis only actually saw the planet Venus through swamp gas while launching a Chinese lantern with his memory being altered by the Mandela effect?

My question is, if they first found an access tunnel from the 1930s in their first attempt at getting to the "vault," why didn't they bother to find out where the thing was pointing, since it would have been constructed by someone who knew where the vault was and was trying to get to it? It would have been aimed right at it.

Also, I just wanted to add that although we are periodically told the team is spending "millions of dollars," on the dig, you can bet that a huge chunk of that money is coming from the History Channel and the sponsors. So rather than it being a costly personal endeavor, it's really more of a sponsored dig where they'll probably make a decent amount of money even if they don't find anything of big value.

I love the show.

It's not all about treasure.

Last week episode strongly points to a previously unknown British encampment from the early 1700's.

Fascinating stuff actually.

One big problem with the investigation is how easily the team is willing to spend a lot of time, effort, and money on the basis of complete hearsay. There are plenty of stories and conjecture, but remarkably little in the way of actual data. Frank Nolan did as much as anybody to collect actual hard data about the island, and he wasn't able to come up with anything. Or he knew that the "X" was actually on Blankenship's property and was hoping to wait him out. Didn't work.

Anyway, every story could be a lie, since there's nothing to back it up.

Think outside the box.
I found this Photo of Oak island that might offer a clue.
Anyone hear of them finding military attire other than the boots?



Right, probably *not* looking for El Dorado..

This isn't Reality TV for nothing. The briefly talk about the searcher tunnel, make you think they are onto the money pit then whammo....searcher tunnel discovered.
They talk about the swamp.....and so briefly show pictures of Nolans previous expedition's/investigations showing loooooooooonnnnggg wooden plankways over the swamp and then....look a really long piece of curved wood.....COULD IT BE a plank from a buried ship? They show a ship spike after a brief gloss over on a railway built along there when they know its a friggin rail spike.

Nolans cross interests me. And I wish Dan Blankenship would unburden himself and admit the 10X hole was just a way to attract more suckers.

Maybe there is buried pirate treasure there.....maybe the boys saw it being dug up and its gone....maybe Mr. Ball found some of it.....but the wild speculation is just filler on something more mudane I fear.

Only 'unknown' because the makers of the program want it that way to make it seem more mysterious.There was known to be a thriving fish processing industry on the island some 100-150 years before all this started.Put out here on the island to avoid paying taxes,they made salt from seawater to preserve fish for the Spanish fishermen during the long journey home from the very rich fishing areas of the North Atlantic.The finger drains that the program wants us to believe are the inlets for the booby traps to fill the alleged treasure tunnels with water are more likely to be what they used to recover salt from sea water.
