I occasionally get mid-air overruns from whipping the lure out insted of a smooth, steady cast.
When casting a BC, try to think of the rod as a hammer, and you are swinging it as to hit a nail.
I don't know if that helps you, but for some reason that analogy helped me to become a little better with my 1st baitcaster.

Once you fully get the hang of your reel,you'll be able to feel a backlash starting to happen with your thumb as well as hear it.Anytime you feel something weird going on,put your thumb on the spool and stop it immediately.
