Black Market Balsa's have been successful for me from as far
North as Lacrosse, Wisconsin to Lake Guerrero, Mexico and
everywhere in between. It's my go to bait and when the money's
on the line...it's my "Money Bait"

The Black Market Balsa Series of Balsa Crankbaits are built from a passion to uncover the secrets and fish
catching ability of the Balsa Baits from the 1970's. These baits have highly been sought for collecting but
more importantly by anglers that know their unbelievable fish catching ability...The "Secrets" from those baits
have been uncovered and David Ryan has been able to recreate these baits and Dave's Custom Baits
assures that each and every Black Market Balsa will perform like the baits of old. These are
reproductions but each bait is hand carved, with the correct bill angle, brass wire harness location, and bait
design...each bait is water tested to guarantee the optimal performance.  If the bait does not run to my
specifications it is not sent out to the customer.

There are three sizes of Black Market Balsa's available:  small, medium and large.  There is one size of Black
Market Slim available and this bait was specifically designed for fishing around floating docks. Choose the
size you want and add your own custom color or choose from our house colors on the painting page to
starting catching memories of your own. (No Foil Finishes)

The pricing for each bait is $50.00.  All baits are sold without hardware.
