That does happen. I had the same problem, too much spit in the call.
Blowing a call for 5 minutes straight, when you think about it is a long time.
You don't blow that long in a round of contest calling, and I don't ever think I have called at the same Ducks for 5 minutes. In between calling at ducks I seperate my call, take a paper towel and slide it behind the reed without bending the reed(absorbing the spit). Then I let it a dry until the next wave of birds come or until it is dry. I use dual loop lanyards for one call so the barrel and insert are close together (when seperated) so I can put the call back together quickly.
