Goose Island wade fishing can be awesome! You don't have to go way out on the pier BTW, the first little channel is really great and I caught my personal best flounder on finger mullet right there. You can catch bait near the bridge going to Goose Island from the campground area is you are proficient with a cast net or there are multiple places nearby to buy bait. Also the fishing pier (Old Copano bridge) is awesome, the East end has a reef fairly close on the north side.
All of St. Charles bay can be very productive wading, just be careful or oysters, rays, etc.
Good luck I hope your kids catch a limit!
