Rebelss:
Well, if the water looks like a boiling pot of water, probably.

Rebelss:
I'm gonna say I think that's your issue. Too much aeration dissolved nitrogen (air) in your livewell water can kill bait and fish.
Air is not oxygen, these gasses are very different. Air is a mixture of gasses that contains oxygen (21%), but it primarily contains nitrogen gas (79%). Too much infused nitrogen will kill fish. They need dissolved OXYGEN in a proper percentage to live.
