Anchor bending

I own a Hunter 35.5 Legend with a Danforth anchor without windlass and sail on large lake in Texas. I am having a problem lately in that, after an overnight stay, when I pull up the anchor, the anchor's neck is bent. The winds were not excessive and the swing only mild. What's happening? My current theory is that when I pull up anchor and "run over" the anchor to pull it from the bottom, I am coming at it from an odd angle -- perhaps I need to hover over the anchor in nuetral so the boat "squares itself" to the pull?? Any other ideas or solutions?
