I don't know if its the colder weather or what. But the line on my spinning combo is always so loopy lately and when reeled back on the spool is not very tight...thus creating problems lol..what are some good ways to straighen this out. or maybe i have bad line.. thanks  :D

Try a spool of #6 Yo-Zuri Hybrid Utra Soft.

I spray it with KVD Line & Lure Conditioner

about every 20 cranks as I initially spool the

reel.

The key to minimizing this (spinning reels twist line inhderently) is to make certain that there is no slack in your line before you start your retrieve.

Closing the bail manually does help, but you still have to be conscious of ensuring that the line is not loose BEFORE the retrieve is started. Think about it... If the line is slack or loose before you start the retrieve, the reel is also going to loosely lay the line back.

Twisted line with spinning reels is a given, so for me, the goal is to minimize it and this is what I do.  When I do this, I hardly ever experience what you described but I have beforehand.

The other thing I do after a few casts is to let the line "rest" a bit, especially when I am using setups where there is no swivel to alleviate line twist.  By "rest", I mean that  I will let the line be with the lure dangling underneath while holding the rod. If there is line twist present, you will see the lure alternate from clockwise to counter-clockwise. After a few seconds, it is practically gone and I get back to fishing.  I call it freeing the twist at the local level.  ;D

I have found it to be very useful and helpful while fishing. I can take care of serious line twist (hardly ever) at home.

what he said. if i have a ton of slack in the water after a cast, i'll grab the line and pull it tight almost a foot above the spool and bring it in with that tension on the line
