I only get wind knots when I get too aggressive on line diameter/spool size on my spinning reels. I don't get them very often anymore, but when I do, I gently pull each end of the knot and if it untangles itself, I'll fish through it. If it gets any type of knot, I cut it and retie. I used to go through a lot of line while I was experimenting and had to have several backup reels at the ready for tournaments.
Once you find the line diameter/spool size ratio that works on your rigs, you won't get them very often.
Another tip is whenever you see any twist between your guides after a cast, even if it's just one curly-Q, run the line out behind the boat and troll out all the line off the spool with nothing tied on the end of the line. Then reel it back in and will now have twist free line for however long it lasts. Also, after you reel in your bait, let it hang and spin for a second to undo the line twist you just put in.
