I used to get them at electrical supply houses for mine . They're pretty standard and cheaper. I'd pull one and take it to get it matched up.

Unfortunately I can't pull one because the boat's down on the coast. My old CMC just used plain 5 pin 80 amp relays but I'm not quite sure what the Bob's uses, they look a little different. I may just have to wait until I get back down there but I know I'll have issues before launching and sooner or later it's gonna bite me.

That's pretty cool. I can see the crappie jigs working on bonefish. That is about what bonefish flies look like.

Crazy, everytime we gigged crawfish fields or reservoirs down there we got mainly yellow throat frogs but you appear to have mainly bulls.

Yellow throats are smaller but a little better eating I think and I grew up on bullfrogs.

I don't see many Yella throats. Used to catch a lot of them, but mostly in mossed over reservoirs. Mostly bulls in the ditches and crawfish fields for us.

On the old maps the back lakes behind it are named East Redfish Paradise and West Redfish Paradise, at times it still is. I'm after the solitude as much as the fish and there's plenty of solitude. There's better places numbers wise not far from there but ol' Cowtrap is still pretty good.

I see she prefers an XL littlejohn. All I’ve got is a regular sized one, but can work it real good.

I went to a popular restaurant in Houston and ordered the seafood soup. It comes with 2 whole crabs cut in half. Everyone was eating the same. So here's my question....I keep getting mixed messages on the gills in crabs. Some say they are ok and some say they are poison and will make you sick. Everyone here was eating the gills. Im pretty sure I grew up eating them as well, but stopped when I learned that they are poisonous. So is that a myth or is there something to that?

I dunno if they're poisonous but I don't like the taste/texture so I don't eat them.
