Gov. Andrew Cuomo took a trip from his New Castle home this past weekend to do some fishing on the Long Island Sound.

If you follow Cuomo's Twitter feed , you already know this.

But now the governor is in hot water with some because the 154.5 pound thresher shark is listed as "vulnerable" to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, though it is legal to catch.

"Today's catch: A 154.5-lb Thresher shark off the south shore of Long Island,#FISHNY," Cuomo said.

Cuomo was joined on the outing by his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, according to Cuomo’s chief of staff Melissa DeRosa.
