That sounds like a great buy on tuna! I live down around Longview, Wa and would love to search for tuna around that price, I would do the same as you did. Did you buy off the dock or was it "from a friend" type of buy? Again not trying to pry, if I can find tuna close to that price if would load up, smoke some and put some in the freezer, also I would be happy to drive to the coast for that price.
