Most specks that you'll catch under the lights are relatively small. Winter fishing is about deeper than normal water where there is bait (usually finfish) seeking the same deeper waters. The small bait that has been around those lights all summer are leaving the bays right now and in 2 months, there will be very little other than finfish.
The lights you might be talking about (hard to know) might be over 4'-5' of water, plenty deep enough to hold a warmth seeking trout, but if there is no bait in the area (the other main reason for them to be there) the trout are not likely to be there.
I'm not saying lights don't work in the winter, just that it is not where you'll find the most trout or the biggest trout - though there are exceptions and people have caught big trout under lights in the winter - but there is usually deep water nearby (like less than 20-30 yards away).
The other thing about night fishing during the winter, because of the cooler night time temps, trout will be less active and even deeper at night than they will be after 8 hours of sunlight have warmed the shallows.
