What I did was cut a small piece of filter foam and stuck it in the hole where the water comes out. Seem to work for me..

Ive had that same problem before. I adjusted the skimmer, so that there was less water getting pumped in, but in the end I got advice from a freind and said after turning it on...it takes awhile for those annoying bubbles to go away...and they did.
