It really depends on what you want the photos for. Personally I like photos that highlight the fish, showing its colours/markings and character, how big it is is a secondary element and for the most part I'm not to fazed about exactly how big someones fish is and tbh you can usually work out the size class from the pic to a reasonable degree of accuracy even when it is being held out.
Yes Mazman, but if you really wanted to highlight the fish you could leave the holder out altogether, as some posters do. I suspect that for some photographers the intention is to exaggerate the size of the fish.
The emotions of the angler can be part of the story. Additionally, photos of an angler holding a fish generally gain a lot more interest than shots of just the fish on Instagram which i think is a pretty good guide for what people like.

And the end of the day how others hold their fish doesn't really matter if they aren't causing unnecessary harm. If knowing how big a fish is bothers you so much start using other cues for determining the size. It's proportion to the background is a pretty poor gauge at the best of times, either look for anything in the foreground, lures left in fish, fingers etc. or look at the fishs' features large fish aren't proportionally scaled up versions of their smaller brethren and there are physical characteristics that can help determine the size class of a fish
