Default pontoon anchor

hello everyone,
I have purchased my first boat, a 23ft pontoon, and have some questions about anchoring. The dealer who has not been the most easy person to deal with has given us a dinky looking and feeling fluke style anchor. It cant weigh more then 10 or 15 pounds. we are anchoring in the chesapeake bay and when ever we try the anchor jus skips along the bottom. Is their something im doing wrong, were we given too small of an anchor? My best guess is the boat weighs between 3000-3500 pounds.
let me know what you think,
geoff
