Switch to disable/kill reverse lights

Good Morning all. I have read multiple great posts on here that have good information about adding additional reverse lights with diagrams. i like that idea a lot, but what i really want to be able to do is throw a switch and kill the break lights completely. mainly for fishing the beach, at night if i move around i do not want my reverse lights lighting up the water (especially during drum season). normally i cover them up with electrical tape but that is just a pain, especialy in fowl weather.

any ideas? im thinking a relay somewhere in line with the hot, but im not too familiar with relays and how they work. thanks in advance.
