Big con of the trolling motor is that battery life, especially at 6mph, will be very limited. It MIGHT be able to maintain 6mph but probably not into a strong current or wind. Are you thinking transom or bow mounted? Edit, I see bow mount. For trolling in a decent chop, your motor might not stay in the water either.

The big pro, like you mentioned, is the anchor feature of the trolling motor but for your uses (primarily trolling it sounds like) and for safety, the kicker makes more sense
