Decreasing thrust of a trolling motor

I have an unusual problem with my trolling motor - it's too powerful. I
have a 12' aluminum John boat and bought a 30 lb thrust12 V Minn-Kota.
Nice motor, but even on the slowest setting it moves the boat too fast,
especially for plastic worm fishing. Using the reverse setting (and
turning around the motor) works a little better, but it's still too fast
unless the wind is very strong. What I would like to do is cut the
speed by a factor of 2 or 3 on all settings. I had thought about
cutting off part of each prop blade to decrease the efficiency. Any
HOW ABOUT BUYING SMALLER PROP OR CUTTING THE EDGES OF YOUR PROP.
THAT IA WHAT I WILL DO.
