Default Portable light?

How long does a light take to start attracting fish in your opinion? I come down about once a month and am wondering if attaching a portable light to the dock I have access to would make any difference during the three or four nights that I am there. I know that I could yak out and hit existing lights, but my wife likes to sit out on the dock with me at night whilst I fish. I have found a good battery powered LED light and am thinking about picking one up. Thoughts? BTW, this dock is about 10'deep if that makes a difference.

I have found that a light in the water will attract bait within 5 or 10 minutes. And fish within 15-20 minutes. But these observations are from a boat. I dont see why a dock would be any different.

I have found that a light IN the water works better and is alot easier on your eyes than a light over the water.

the best thing you can do is also chum when you are going to be there. I like to use the sinking catfish food you can get at any feed store, maybe $25 for a 50 lb sack. Toss a quart or two in the water and you will get an instant slick that will pull fish to your light. If it gets slow toss a few cups of cat food in too. these work great off my dock, anything near by is going to come check the smell out.
