Melton Cherry Jets

Melton Cherry Jets

Still our workhouse and best seller! The original Melton Cherry Jet is the finest scoop jet lure on the market today with a design so unique, it's patented! The Cherry Jet's unique swimming action and side to side movement are hard to beat from any trolling position. Each Melton Cherry Jet is machined from solid brass bar stock to exacting aerospace tolerances and hand polished to a mirror finish. Fish cannot resist the tuned sonic resonance and thick bubble stream. Proven irresistible to every major species pursued by the blue water enthusiast. All Melton Jets are proudly MADE IN THE USA.

We have long known that Cherry Jets are deadly on all Tuna and Marlin species but recently they have enjoyed unmatched success on bigeye, yellowfin, bluefin and albacore tuna. One famous East Coast Charter operation, "Canyon Runner" wont leave the dock without a full spread of Melton Cherry Jets. The very lure that won them $236,000 in the 2012 White Marlin Open! That fish was caught on a medium cherry jet in "Canyon Runner" skirt colors. If your serious about your offshore fishing you owe to yourself to fish these lures.

There are three sizes of cherry jet. Small 3/4 diameter, Medium 7/8 diameter and large, 1" diameter. The small Cherry Jet is ideal for 20-80lb. tackle but don't be fooled by it's small size...200lb.+ tuna love this lure. The Medium Cherry Jet is best on 30-130lb. tackle and the Large is best on 50lb.-unlimited due to it's heavier weight and ability to carry a double hook rig up to a 10/0 size.

We have preselected our hottest "catching" colors for you below but all Melton Cherry Jets are available custom skirted in your choice of colors.

  A must have on every offshore boat

Time and time again these Melton Cherry Jets produce even in unlikely or difficult situations. Recently, while make the long run back home on a 12 knot Downeaster on a sloppy day I said what the hell we are in deep water and we are not going that all that fast and dropped a couple of these back at least we would get entertainment of watching the awesome action and smoke trails... Folks ask "can you really catch something at this speed?"..they've done it before I said...and in no time we were hooked up had screaming reels and smiles of amazement all around. You just have to have a few of these onboard, rigged and ready to go all the time. They hold up too, just wash them off with fresh water and store them neatly and they look like new and last for years.

When the clients want to catch a wahoo this is the best lure going. Melton International needs to offer other skirt combos in particular black over read and hot pink. Marlin tuna and dorado also bite this lure on a regular basis. I recommend rigging the lure with heavy mono leader in the 500lb- 600lb range. Inspect the leader after every bite and trim down as needed. A MONEY MAKER, PURE AND SIMPLE!!!!!!!!
