If the fish doesn't earn the reel don't worry about it. The only time I might force the issue is if there's only a little line in the basket (shortly after a cast), and I might slap the reel a couple times for the reel. When I first started salmon fishing I lost a lot of fish trying to force them on the reel...just pay attention to catching the fish, and not spooling up line for no reason. There's really no way around your issue if you want to spool up the line though. The line you are trying to spool is under layers of line you stripped on top, and forcing it out will often lead to tangles.
