Darin now lives in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and considers his home waters to be Lake Wisconsin . His 2007 schedule will be devoted to fishing the Wisconsin Team Circuit, Daveís Division. Darin also plans on fishing open tournaments in the Madison , Wisconsin area, as well as some in other areas of the state. In the summer months, he fishes most weekends, with a few scattered weekdays connected to them. He enjoys learning new waters and reading lake maps to locate bass. His fishing strengths would include flipping jigs and plastics as well as swimming jigs. 

I am 35 years old and live in Glen Ellyn , IL , a suburb of Chicago , IL . I have been married now for 12 years to the most wonderful and understanding woman in the world. She continues to encourage me when others would not. I have been teaching science to middle school students for nine years and I have loved every minute of it. My wife Jennifer and I have no children, but we have two labs that demand a lot of our attention. 

I grew up fishing the waters of Lake Wisconsin and the Wisconsin River . My family lived in Harmony Grove and I quickly fell in love with bass fishing. Whether it was wading the shallows casting spinner baits, or wading off of the main river channel for small mouths, I was almost always chasing bass. I fished in my first club tournament and won at the age of 14 on the river and never lost the passion.

After graduating from college at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse , my wife and I settled on the shores of Lake Onalaska . It was then that I resumed my competitive fishing. I fished in the Black River Bassmasterís Wisconsin Federation club for three years. In those three years, I qualified to fish our zone tournament three times. I ended up fishing zone twice. Those two years, I also qualified to fish at the state tournament. Since then, I have been fishing open tournament in the Madison , Wisconsin area. This past year I fished the Great Lakes BFL and finished the year in 56th place of the regional standings. I will be taking the year off from the BFL due to a new job opportunity, but look forward to returning to it soon.
