Anchor rode keeps wrapping around fin keel - can we prevent it?

Hi all,
We are in an estuary with a 3 knot tidal current, and twice in the last two days we have had our rode wrap around our fin keel necessitating fancy acrobatics to disentangle it. We keep the tiller lashed amidships and drag out dinghy out behind us, and we have some awnings on deck that provide a small amount of windage. Has anybody else had this problem? Can anyone suggest strategies to prevent it from recurring?
Thanks!
