You may be overpowering your forward cast as well, or not having a solid stop (both would cause the pile in front of you as well as depriving you of good loops). If possible, try and get a video of your casting stroke, as we have some pretty solid casters on here that could diagnose what you're doing.

I agree with all of this and especially the part in red because I am finally starting to cure my forward cast of this same problem. It is very easy to start getting frustrated and start putting power into the forward cast too early.
