Compressor Water Problem

I've got a Craftsman 30 gallon compressor that I put in the basement to lessen floor space problems in the garage.

I ran pipe up to the garage and installed an in-line water filter and an oiler in the basement. On the end of the pipe, I have a 30 ft hose that I have never removed. I empty the compressor tank after use.

The problem I have is a lot of water in the line. The water filter gets a light mist inside it, but doesn't seem to trap much.

Should the filter be closer to the end of the pipe?

Any suggestions?
