High prices expected for Maine elver season

In this Thursday, March 14, 2013 photo, eel fisherman Mike Murphy, of Cundy's Harbor, Maine, inspects a 30-foot-long fyke net, in Falmouth, Maine. Last year, glass-eel fishermen at times got more than $2,500 a pound for their catch. Murphy and his fishing partners intend to spend the next eight days in a parking lot next to the Presumpscot River in order to hold their fishing spot until the elver season opens on March 22.
