Canadian Gene Vollendorf, second from right, of Calgary, took home more than a few fillets this week, when he boated this 221-pound halibut from near Shelter Island. Vollendorf was fishing with fellow Canadians Trevor Harding and Allen McDonald, and Austrian Hannes Kovak, aboard guide Mike Duby's Huntress on Friday when he landed the big fish after a 30-minute battle.
