Welcome from West Lafayette just South of you. There are good striper lakes in the southern part of the state and like others have said you should get on some Lakers in Lake Michigan. Regarding the kayak in River fishing just let me know when you want to hit up the Kankakee Iroquois or the Tippecanoe I'd be game to join you.
