On Monday, Oct. 10, Jeff, with 9-year-old son Rhett Whitney and 8-year-old nephew Zack Poche, found a spot near Reserve Canal to catch the “big ones.” Fishing was interrupted when a baying, howling young beagle appeared on the bank, jumped into the water, started swimming toward the boat and climbed aboard into the boat.
