Got a lot of feedback on this one however I have to give the credit to John
Riddoch and Bill who both hit it on the head....or should I say the MEM
chip.  I pulled each memory chip out and put them back one at a time till I
came up with a bad one. Thanks guys :)

Now with a hook and a little wire I got myself a new fishing lure.
