For those who have longed to try surf fishing but don’t relish the idea of getting their feet wet, there’s good news on the horizon. Recently the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has granted a permit to Clayton Brashear, of Clayton’s Beach Bar, for the construction of a fishing pier that will stretch into the Gulf of Mexico.
The pier will be the signature feature of several improvements already in the works at the popular beachside bar and restaurant, said Clayton’s General Manager Adolfo ZamoraWednesday.
Already, work is progressing to construct a sidewalk along the venue’s south side. Next up will be adding a deck similar to the existing one, but approximately half as big, on the property adjacent to the beach bar, as well as a parking lot expansion. Brashear purchased half of the property immediately south of his establishment with expansion in mind.
