Pier Fishing

Hi! My family is heading to Manistee for vacation the last week of August. We will have several teenage boys as well as adults, and I thought pier fishing would be a fun activity. I found the following site, and was hoping to get opinions on the best places to fish, what bait to use, best time to fish, and what we can expect to catch.

Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!!
