Yeah, they get hooked in the tail because I beelive they hit the water/fish with the tail to stun it before turning around to eat it. Have heard that quite often they are caught when a smaller fish took the bait without the angler knowing and the thresher grabs the small fish.

Been thinking about it a bit more, I beleive that Birdlingflat caught one off Birdling flat once, and Ginga got one off the beach at Kaikoura. Both last summer I think.
