    So this young "expert" says the "crossbow bolt" is a Roman Pilum. I do not believe so. 2000 yrs old. Do not think so. More likely along the line of a 1/4" hotwire post fashioned into a gigging spear by some handy fellow within the last century. Kudos to the fellow. Not so sure about the rest of this gang.

    Absolutely! Just went down and looked at my 9 foot antique frog gigger. My points are still sharp, but the center spike is the same 1/4 inch with barb on it. Keep in mind mine hasn't been rolling in stone surf for a couple of decades, and it's for frogs, not lobster, fish, eel, etc. I rolled my eyes so hard tonight at the Roman bit, that I think I dislodged something.

    First it was a Templar cross bolt, now a Roman spear. This keeps getting better and better.
    Cant wait till they drain the cove they will find stuff from the Dinosaurs. Maybe T Rex dug the flood tunnels and hid some Pterodactyl eggs in the MP for a late night snack.
    Not buying any of this but I do still watch for the entertainment factor.

    Oh, now they'll bring back Colonel Philyaw, whatever, and he'll produce a Roman digital watch set to 321BC and that will mean a side trip to Sicily to burn some air time.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Although it sure must be fun and exciting to be able to dig there, i agree 100% it's all about ratings and $$$. That island has been dug up, turned upside down and inside out by hundreds of treasure hunters over the past couple hundred years maybe longer. They dig deep pits, find nothing, then bury all their trash in it and cover it up when they leave. Next tribe of diggers come in like Rick and Marty, find "voids" in the earth with ground penetrating radar , start boring holes everywhere and it's a big thing if they come up with some old wood { aka someones trash pit}. reminds me of DIGGERS where every piece of junk dug up must certainly have belonged to George Washington himself .

    I don’t think so. He had no reason to think KT.

    His theory was the British was the ones who hide the treasure. From the Havana raid.

    Yes the Indians would break the one end off and use them as awls or make bracelets out of the longer ones

    This is more plausible then the Romans.. The top one does look similar. J.Steeles theory (From her book The Oak Island Mystery, Solved) is that there was a naval store operation on OI run and controlled by the Jesuits...

    French Jesuits were "operating" in my area of NY in 1615. Poor as church mice (IMHO "Jesuit Treasure" is a hoax) but definitely bringing trade goods in to coax the locals to attend mass and convert.

    Whatever you can poke is what you can gigg.... Should be a bumper sticker.

    I have used one on just about everything that can crawl in the tidal waters, never cared much for frogs. They gullible masses will believe whatever they are fed in hi-def. Its a conspiracy to brainwash and pacify, but this is a whole other topic.

    Back to Freemasons gigging for frogs....

    Yeah that guy who says the spike is a 2000 yr old Roman Pilum totally lost all credibility. I mean what a completely ridiculous conclusion. Even the most optimistic characters in the room couldn't even bring themselves to fake belief or excitement. I guess its time to delete that guys phone number...
