Probably to keep the line away from the hull and the gunwale where it can chafe and break.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

she's the mate
lots of reasons for a mate to handline.
esp if the fish could be released.
