Use a swivel to connect your leader.

Rig your plastic straight so it doesnt spin.

Cut off lure. Run out your bare line behind the boat while you are running and it will take out the twist.

Use a topwater....

Oh yea .... and get TroutSupport

Try a weighted hook vs a jig head.

Sgrem has the solutions. I’ll offer an observation.

I noticed that some soft plastics produce more line twist than others due to the ‘helicoptering’ rotating action it imparts during flight. For me, the longer baits like Norton Sand Eels do this the most. It’s probably more attributed to the way I cast and the jig heads used than the shape of the bait as I noticed that slight changes in my casting technique cause more or less helicoptering. Watch your bait as it flies and tweak the cast if you’re so inclined. I know that a swivel will solve line twist but I don’t like swivels.

i try my best,

Cut off lure. Run out your bare line behind the boat while you are running and it will take out the twist.

i do this from time to time.

Use a topwater....

i do this as often as possible, 55 degree water 15 feet deep??

Oh yea .... and get TroutSupport

now this i haven't done, only if Tobin will give me 100% refund if my line still twist, and i don't catch 10lb trout.

Try a weighted hook vs a jig head.
now we are stepping out of bounds??

i use a a swivel a foot above my lure with no success(i still do it but not sure why), i've thought about using a clip but that is not my style. i've heard too many fails. been dealing with this problem for about 35 years now, for real.

I don't have issues with the paddle tails...but I thread them on the jig backwards according to some.

When I first started throwing Bass Assassins (back in my mono days), I had this problem. Do you use braid or mono? I seem to recall someone saying braid had less of a twisting problem than mono

Anyhoo, it wasn't until I got better at rigging them straight on the hook like Sgrem said that it got better. The way I could tell if I had it on straight was to rig it and then troll it at rod's length in front of myself or over the side of the boat. If it spun, I would re-rig. Had to throw away more than a few baits before I got the hang of it.

No swivel between main line and leader for me. If I feel I need a swivel (to control line twist) I put a split ring on the lure and attach a swivel to it...then tie my leader to the swivel. Placing a swivel between the main line and leader relegates you to using a short leader, which I do not like.

for me has nothing to do with crooked or straight lure. i do like my lure perfectly straight and always make sure they are. and i often let line out with no lure behind the boat in an attempt to rectify the problem, but in all actuality this only get a few twist out and does not by any stretch of the imagination get the line even close to normal.

may have to go with the split ring/swivel, but really don't like the added weight. fishing power pro super slick 8(8/30) with a 5 or 6 foot 20lb ande mono leader, attached with the FG/Rizzuto finish.

yea those rat tail bass assassins are the worst when it comes line twist if you don't use a swivel. that, and spoons. i've been using 12lb big game mono, 15lb flourocarbon leader with a swivel 2' above the lure for over 20yrs. no problemo
