The only thing you will be missing at those low speeds without a bow mount is control in the wind. Much easier to contol a boat from the bow at slow speeds, especially when heading into the wind or troughing the waves.
You are free to anchor during the jig bite or at anytime but you will irritate a lot of people on the crowded reefs. Drifting allows you to cover more structure and motor back up for a second pass over a productive area.
Some people use the electric bow mount for drift control but I usually use my drift socks for that purpose when needed.
