Lucido is a Monterey native who grew up around the wharf; his parents owned a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. Starting at a young age he got to know local fishermen, and was invited to go out and learn the art of catching. After a trip to Bristol Bay in Alaska with his grandfather, he was hooked. At 16 he bought his first boat and after working on a number of charter boats from age 16 to 30, he eventually got the 21-foot Robalo boat he takes out solo. He catches crab, salmon, halibut, bonito and lingcod during their respective seasons, with the bulk of his fishing happening between May and October. A few years ago, he worked with the harbor and the city of Monterey to allow dockside sales.
