An angler fishing the 24th Annual Star Island Yacht Club Shark Tournament landed a 300-pound great white. His catch is landing him in hot water. He made the mistake of keeping the shark, which is illegal, and is now under investigation by federal authorities. (Originally reported in subscription-based Newsday.)

I have a call into a participant I know to see if I can get more of the story. Stay tuned.
