Mac’s Seafood and the Lobster Trap have done business together for decades and know many of the same people, have heard many of the same fish stories. Although there is a 20-year age difference, the businesses have grown in similar ways, had similar successes with small-boat commercial fishermen at the core of their successes. Last year, Mac’s bought the Lobster Trap and its properties in Bourne and Maine. Check out this gallery to get a glimpse into Mac Hay and Sam Bradford’s new venture.
