A research team is tracking a great white shark off our coast.

Ocearch reports that 'Katharine' at 5:30 a.m. Monday was south of Cape Lookout.

The 2300 pound female was caught on August 20th near Cape Cod, tagged and then released.

Since then, 'Katharine' has traveled 1183 miles. According to her track, the great white was just off Cape Lookout Friday night.

Last Winter, 'Mary Lee' made news when the 3,456 pound great white was tracked possibly going into the Pamlico Sound.
