It doesn't matter where you are or what you're doing, the law is the same: IF traffic can be affected, you must signal. Whether traffic could be affected in the situation you described is a question of fact and it depends on whether the officer charging in that situation could articulate how traffic was affected.

Oncoming traffic would be affected. The oncoming drivers may not see/recognize that there is a designated left turn lane there, particularly at night.
