I'm sure it would work here. Pick a lake that doesn't have allot of stumps or underwater obstacles or grass. Line counter reels would probably be the biggest cost to pursue it. Flats that have a common depth would be beneficial. Either use allot of fuel or have some tough trolling batteries to make it though the day.
I have allot of success putting out bamboo tops and catching Crappie out of them. They last about 3 years and I usually catch 70 to 100 fish and keep a dozen per trip. Side imaging has changed crappie fishing forever.
If fish were harder to find or more scattered I would pursue it.
The first 5 days after the Weekend are the Hardest.
