Default Blackfishing-trolling motor

I am planning on trying to use a trolling motor with an anchoring feature to try and catch blackfish in 10 feet of water. Do you guys or gals think the motor will scare the fish and put them off their feed? Anxious to here your options and/or first hand experiences. Thanks!

Read my article in the October issue of Saltwater Sportsman, we did a 5 pages on back water tog fishing and I use spot lock exclusively in shallow water, no issues at all.
