Like lots of local chefs, Patrick Feury of Nectar in Berwyn enjoys fishing.

Last month, he and his buddies won a trophy for it.

At Star Island Yacht Club & Marina's 28th annual Shark Tournament, off Long Island, his boat, the Alyssa Ann, reeled in first place for the heaviest mako - 281-pounder. (Uh, oh. Better get mako.)

Feury said the shark fought for 40 minutes, followed by a half-hour's getting it on board alive.

The shark meat was donated to the Long Island Council of Churches.
