Livewell getting airlock?

Recently purchased a 2310 Action Craft and have been in love. However my back livewell has been acting strange. It will fill fine when first turned on, but at some point while running it will start only pumping a tiny amount of water and lots of air bubbles and I cannot get it to re prime although the pump is running. The pump is a 1100 gph rule livewell pump with a through hull high speed pickup and the front well works fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Check your pick up for debris or insect nest. If you have a strainer check your o ring it may be sucking air.

    Does this happen after you back the boat up?   My scoop will airlock the pump if im backing up hard.  To prevent this, I turn the switch off and back on once going forward
