Is there any benefit to aerating the shoreline of a lake front property?

Thanks

I am not sure about that but I do know that a couple chicken thighs in a minnow trap set off the dock dose wonders to catch fish.

It must bring in the plankton and minnows. We found that small mouth bass have a bit of a territory and would protect the dock. We could catch three or four every day. Over night they would find the bait and stay to be caught in the day. Kids have a blast.


On the aeration I guess if you were having problems with your water intake. We have to place our water intake out deep to keep the plankton out of our water. If to close to shore or to the surface we would suck up gobs of plankton. An air station at and above our water intake might keep the water colder in the day time mixing the bottom lower water before getting pulled in.

Cheers Don.

I know in my pond the aeration plume at different times attracts lots of 2-3" BG and I will see something attacking them (I presume LMB) around the edge of the plume.

So it might work as a sort of fish attraction.

No personal experience in a BOW larger than 3 acres though.
