Default Using Green Fishing Lights for Stripers at Night

I saw some green fishing lights on the web and was wondering if anyone has ever used them in the northeast or to catch stripers anywhere? It looks like you hook them up to your battery and float them in the water behind your boat. It's a green light. They're supposed to attract plankton which brings in the bait fish and then the lager fish. I primarily fish for stripers in the Boston Harbor and was wondering if anyone has used these lights for night fishing. Are they a scam or is it worth the investment? Any thoughts are welcome.

I bought one of them green lights last spring but never used it yet, but, I know regular spot lights work good, they attract the baitfish and stripers. I dont see why the green lights wouldnt work to

Hey Boston'

Heard green doesn't scare the fish, much like a white L.E.D. would do.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and ideas. I think I'll try them out next spring and will let everyone know how it goes.
