What is an aerated live well?

If you’re looking to fish with live baits (Ie. shrimp, minnows, or pass crabs) you’ll want an aerated well. Different from a storage bin, a live well is a compartment filled using a high-speed pickup which draws water from outside of the boat. From there, the aerator circulates bubbles throughout and keeps your baits oxygenated. One rule regarding live wells, it should be rounded to allow for swimming in a circular pattern.
