Braid is not hard to get twisted up, but it does take some effort to untwist.
First, remove the leader, knots, and hooks so that it’s just the braided line.
Then you will drag it out behind the boat just like you are trolling.
Let the line out until you can see where the twisted line stops.
The line will naturally unspin itself in the water.
Lastly, you’ll spool it back nice and tight.
As you reel in, pinch the line with your fingers and point the rod tip towards where the line is dragging behind the boat.
You’ll be able to smooth out the line with your fingers and also check for any frays or damage.
You may have to repeat this process to get out all of the twists but then you’re ready to re-rig and keep fishing!
