I've stored some keitech swimbaits in 3700 boxes and have noticed the tails are cocking to one side causing them to not swim very well. How do you store your soft swimbaits? I dont own a boat so I am looking for bags, boxes or any suggestions, I'm currently leaning towards buying a bag and leaving them in the clam shells

Leaving them in the clamshell is about your only bet. It's possible to straighten out kinked tails with a little effort. Laying them outstretched in sun for a while will soften them, but without a clamshell they will end up kinked again in storage. You can also try dipping the tails in boiling water briefly to relax and straighten them - proceed with caution.

Leave any bait that comes in a clamshell in there.
