We won't believe you until you post photos though.
With some anchors, much more than 6-12' of chain don't help. Get yourself a new anchor, like a Manson Supreme, Buegel or Rocna, with at least a boat length of chain. 5/16" G4 chain would be good if it'll work in the windlass you have. If you don't have a windlass...it'll work well in any case.
Cheaping out on the ground tackle is generally a bad idea.
BTW, the best anchor on the market IMHO is the Rocna, and a 10 or 15 kg Rocna would be a great primary anchor for you.
Halekai and I both have Rocnas as our primary anchors BTW... and have written about them here quite a bit. Halekai also has almost every other anchor made...and uses the Rocna as his primary out of choice...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
