As a fellow guide and Tournament Striper Fisherman as well as the President of the Appalachian Striper Club you cannot ask to know a more helpful or courteous and hard working guide than Capt. Rick. Rick has helped me with guide trips as well as fished with me in Striper tournaments. He has always made himself available to give presentations at our ASC meetings and will share any and all Striper information needed to help you catch these hardheaded fish. Capt. Rick will be a great person for anybody who fishes with him or wants to fish for Stripers or learn how to fish for Stripers. –Lance Carter ASC Striper Club President Owner and Operator of The Dark Side Striper Guide Service Hartwell SC

I would like to send you a sincere Thank You to Captain Rick Owen of “Rick’s Guide Service” for an OUTSTANDING fishing experience! Rick displays a very professional and friendly personality that went over GREAT with my 9 year old son Logan. He will talk about this fishing trip for many moons and has already asked when we can go again! It was without a doubt the best guided trip I’ve ever been on! –Chris Gibby Mt. Airy, GA

I have fished Lake Murray for fifteen years and decided that it was time for a change, so I chose Lake Hartwell. Little did I know how intimidating this lake could be! After a couple of years of disappointment I hired several guides that took me out to catch "party fish" which taught me nothing. I then found Ricks web site that said "instructional trips available", so I gave it a try. This was the best decision as Rick not only brought instructional literature and rigs, he drove me around the lake and showed me all of his spots and told me when and how to fish them. I was in disbelief but I can assure you that it was the best money ever spent and my fishing success tripled thanks to "Ricks Guide Service". –Fellers Wise Spartanburg SC

Rick Owen has been a great edition to HomeTown Neighbors Magazine. Since the inception of our first issue in June 2004, we have had the pleasure of having “Fishing with Rick” be an anticipated article for readers of HomeTown Neighbors every month. Rick is extremely talented and knowledgeable in Striper Bass Fishing, but more importantly he is honest, sincere and really cares about his clients and others. He is a friend and Hometown Neighbors would not be the same without him. I would advise anyone to book a fishing trip with Rick. I have personally been on a fishing tour, and loved it. I wish Rick much happiness and success always. –Raina Troxell Publisher/Owner HomeTown Neighbors Magazine
