How to prevent stuff from sticking to my "well seasoned" cast iron skillet

I have been using my #10 Wagner (60's) for about a year (it was cleaned up a year ago) and have good seasoning layer. I use mostly lard, but also olive oil and coconut oil for cooking. Mostly I use it for breakfast, eggs and toast with no problems of sticking (if I use oil)

When I cook some items, like pork chops, or fry bananas, for instance, the surface gets really sticky - so I have to use salt method or boil water method to clean it before next use. Otherwise, eggs will be torn apart!

However, if I want to cook, say my bananas before my eggs, a real sticky surface develops, and really makes it hard to cook the eggs.

Any suggestions on how to prevent the surface from getting sticky so I can cook several things without having to do major cleaning between items?

Thanks!
Jason
