    I'm sorry! I meant the type of light you place in the water to attract bait fish.

    When fishing for flatheads, I try to keep the lighting to a minimum. And the last thing you need to do is put a light in the water hoping to attract baitfish. You will be sucessful in spooking flatheads. Lighting to attract baitfish during catfishing is unnecessary.

    i only use a light like kenny said,and only to retie or bait up or something like that.

    no lights!!!!!! lol

    i don't hardly ever use a light when landing a fish,just cause i have seen them go crazy and break lines at the bank because of it.only time i use a light in the water is when it is so dark out i can't make the fish out in the water to net it.
