Just curious my local lake has 6-8 aerators running and notice there is always a lot of baitfish holding there my question is would there be bass holding around these with the fresh oxygen and plenty of food and what methods to use to catch them?

Definitely! There should be a few hanging around. I've had luck catching fish on a scrounger head with a white fluke, an underspin with a 3.5" paddle tail swimbait, spinnerbait, weightless fluke, etc... Just make sure you match the hatch. To me, fishing aerators is similar to fishing dock lights. You'll catch a few pretty quickly then those fish catch on and stop biting. Don't get discouraged. Just go fish somewhere else for awhile then come back and you should catch a couple more.

At Bridgeport some smaller up to 3 lbs hang out around them sometimes. Slabs flukes and cranks are good.
