In a perfect world you should pull your rope out after every trip hang it in a loose coil to dry and repack it before each trip.
I am an offender of not doing this each and every trip but at least once a week when I'm boating alot.
The reason to repack it often is how many times have you seen someone go tho toss their bag and the rope didn't come out because it was stuck inside. That is from your rope drying inside the bag and becoming stiff so it doesn't play out like it is supposed to.
