I do both. If im drifting with five or six rods out, and I get a double or triple hit...i might hover over that spot for a bit to see if I can pick up more, they are there for reason.
I have a couple of favorite deep structures I hover over especially after serious cold snaps, because the shad and cats will bunch up on them. when the cats are scattered I drift more. the ipilot helps with all of these techiques.
here is a neat trick, drop your ipilot in the water and hit record, then drive along a creek channel or drop off with you big motor on idle to map the course you want to troll. save the course you just mapped to your remote, and then turn the big motor off and you can use your ipilot to slowly work it back and forth, stopping and hovering if you get a fish ot two, or working short stretches back an forth, using the go to start and go to end and spotlock buttons. you can keep your bait over good structure like humps or dropoffs or creek channles effectively with an ipilot! as for speed, .5 or .6 mph when cold, up to 1mph when water is warmer,
