I don't know about catfishing with lights, but I catch bait on a dock that has a green light and I also get white bass, yellow bass, bream, buffalo, carp and hybrids every time. All I'm saying is green sure brings in the shad and bait fish a lot better than the white lights.

I don't use green lights for catfishing in the sense that I use it to draw fish in, but I use it for baitfish such as shad and minnows. The way the green lights work is they stimulate phytoplankton to gather around the light at night which is microscopic "stuff" shad eat. Typically catfish are slow movers and I haven't seen them anywhere near my lights despite plenty of other fish such as crappie/sand bass/large mouth being drawn in due to the shad. Manufacturers have experimented and they find the green lights work better than white because they emit a particular spectrum of light that works better with the phytoplankton.
I just got a Green LED fishing light from www.greenglowdocklight.com and it works great. Very bright easy to drop in and out. comes with both battery clips and cigarette plug. Green always seems to work the best and its easier on the eyes. tanker
Thanks for the reply everyone, we got a green led light from Bass Pro, 12 volt, 160 led lights, it is BRIGHT!! been out a couple times, caught some, but we need to learn more, or be in the right spots, more time to learn I guess.
