Which trolling motor for a small skiff?

I am trying to decide between the Minkota SP and SM bow mounted trolling motors for my 16 foot Ankona Shadowcast. The Ipilot is out of my price range. I don't have much experience using trolling motors, so I am not sure if I should get a foot pedal control or the hand controlled SM model. Do you find that it is difficult to fish if you have a hand controlled model, because you are constantly adjusting the direction of the trolling motor?
