Give up on that bait and come to Louisiana and catch some real fish.
I would like to try some swamp fishing. I've always loved bass. When I was younger, I caught a 10 lb large mouth in NE Oklahoma. Now my game plan is to tackle the tackle with hackle...flies.
Going to regret this. The WORLD RECORD(s) come from Arkansas. Red/White river areas. Good Luck and Good Fishing !

The Blue River in central Colorado, near the ski resorts in Breckenridge.
Brooks River in Katmai National Park either June or August. Skip July or September as the bears are nuts there then.
The Roaring Fork or Frying Pan Rivers in Colorado are tough to beat.
Bozeman through Dillon, MT. Lots of public access off the roads with great options, or lots of bigger water to get a guded drift boat.
Two of the most famous trout streams in the world are the Beaverkill and the Willowemoc, both located in New York State's Sullivan County. A genuine fly fisher's paradise.
I know...that's where I live...!!
Do check it out.
You could do a few days in Colorado, the blue already mentioned, the South Platte, a few high country lakes, and there's plenty more where that came from. I would also second Yellowstone.
But if you are truly looking for the ultimate manly fishing trip for trout, I would go with either Alaska or Tierra del Fuego.
A guided trip to the White River in Arkansas would be hard to beat, if you want to SLAM LUNKERS all day. After the first freeze the shad die off creates a feeding frenzy on top off fall fattening up feeding patterns. God willing I'll be there this year for it. With designated fly tackle only and catch and release only areas fishing is top notch and can only be beaten by helicopter rides in Russia. lots of bang for your buck and cabin and tent on river camping areas for 12 dollars a day. Cheers.
Late Nov early Dec.
I wasn't kidding about louisiana. The time of year is getting perfect. If you can afford it a charter trip to the chandeleur islands for fly fishing is the best thing around, hands down. I've done all of the fishing mentioned above, as well as all types of saltwater, and a fair bit of fishing in other countries, and chandeleur islands this time of year is the best in the world. If your looking for a budget trip and you have a boat I'll even give you coordinates for bullreds on a fly rod out of Breton sound. A do it yourself trip is real easy. Don't even need a big boat this time of year. I actually prefer my John boat in early November to the first cold front.
I with Hobob, Yellowstone lake or river trout fishing. Watch elk, moose, buffalo or deer while you fish. Don't leave any fish guts around or you will see a bear.
montana, best trout state in the country ive heard! but really you cant beat the scenery in any of the western states like colorado, montana, wyoming, idaho.
If you have the money, Labrador Can.
Western Montana is the mecca for a fly fisherman looking to catch trout!
Also Big O was correct on the state for the word record brown trout, but they were both caught in the Norfork River in Norfork Arkansas about a week apart from each other.
I've been fishing in almost every state out west as well as Canada multiple time. The best is by far either the Aspen area with the Roaring Fork/Frying Pan if you can be there when the green drake is on!!! UNREAL.
Or my personal favorite, the Western Montana, Wyoming Area. The fish in my picture was caught on the Greene River. Fishing inside the park is great. You have the Madison which for me is one of the greatest rivers I've ever fished.
