You might be starting the cut against the grain.
Fluted bites are bad about gouging out a chunk of wood if grain direction is wrong.
I agree with Brad, jack up the RPM’s and try again.
Even if the grain direction is fighting the bit, higher RPM’s can eliminate the issue.

However my recommendation is use the router fence.
I find this works best and is the safest way to go, even with bearing bits.
I rarely ever use a pin anymore.
