While I can see the trolling motor set up working to some degree I think the pictures pretty much show it won't even come close to doing what a real ice eater will do. Just something to know on the front end.

We have a real one at our place and on below 10 degree nights ours will keep open at a minimum of a 1/4 acre hole without the first piece of ice in it. Like mentioned above we also use it at times just to keep water moving and decoys swimming. It is cumbersome to move and set out and without close electricity you pretty much have to have a generator to run it so there is that added problem. Nice to have though on those few cold snaps a year.
