John's Pass and anchorage near Hooters

I stopped by John's Pass a week or so ago and was told that it would cost $10 to anchor on the beach next to Hooters. I was a bit surprised and told the guy I would spend my $10 across the pass at Gator's.
Is this legal? The beach is spoil sand within the confines of the pass.

    I don't know if it's legal or not but I would have done the same as you did.
    To me it seems akin to charging you to park at their restaurant.:n
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    They could possibly own the land.

    Sounds a little suspicious to me, I guess it is possible they own the land to the high water mark or was somebody trying to pull a scam?
