Brushed ESC for a small trolling motor?

I am wondering if it is possible to use electronic speed control for a small trolling motor (It is brushed) that can be controlled with a radio receiver and transmitter. The trolling motor is 12V and has a max current draw of 15A. So basically I need a brushed ESC that is compatible with a 12V 35AH deep cycle SLA (sealed lead acid) battery. If this is not possible, can someone point me in the right direction for a different method of speed control for my application? I also considered pulse width modulation, but you have to manually adjust a potentiometer for it to work right (In other words, you can't use it with a radio transmitter/receiver? All comments and suggestions welcome.
