Default using lights to attract fish???

Is it legal to use an underwater light to attract fish in Florida? I've done it in other states and it sometimes really gets the plankton and baitfish going. if it is legal, are there any restrictions?

Not so much for the sole purpose of catching fish. I'm coming down in September and thought it would be cool to sink a big light out between the sandbars for a few hours for the kids to see all the neat stuff it attracts.

Probably just bring in a thousand cats & lady fish anyway, just didn't want to do it if it was illegal.
