can't you beat 10NL just by set mining and open shoving AA-TT/AK?

Since start of Feb:
Yesterday's 1k+ session:
This ^^ could have easily been a win (not necessarily a big one), with a few hands going the other way (**bad beat storys start: I had AA vs AK, flop Q72 rainbow, yeah runner runner straight, and two pair hitting the boat on the river vs my nut flush twice*** end bad beat storys), but still, I feel like these games should be crushable.
I re-read the "How to beat $10NL" in the archive, but I really wasn't getting paid on any of my big hands. It was really bizarre not to be felting anyone with my sets. I wasn't getting the value I should have enough of the time that I was consciously aware-- "wow, no action again!".
I tried to be cognizant of game selection as well. Initially I tried to select tables with at least 30% seeing the flop, and with higher pot totals as well. But I found myself leaving a lot of tables because they were running at under 25%vp$ip w/ pf raise % 7+.
I did run across some really really fishy players on occasion, but there were not entire tables of them. Of course the uber fish would suck out on me and then give my money to some nit .
Anyway, I am going to try again today.
1. max buy-in $10 (I experimented yesterday with partially trying min/short stack play, which seemed to do ok as well).
2. just set mining and open shoving AA-TT/AK (although I have to say the open shove didn't work for me on tables where I was tight-- I just didn't get any action).
Add limps in multiway pots otb and co w suited aces and "flush mine"?
