I put the jig and a couple big dollops of this stuff in a ziplock bag and leave it over night. The paint wipes right off.

Sand paper, paint remover, torch, heat gun, acetone (depends on the paint), bead blaster,

If you have the tools, this polycarbonate disc from Harbor Freight works pretty good:

Removing the hook and rings would be a GOOD idea.

    I asked the same question earlier this year to Fish Dog Gary and Joel Shimizu. Here are their responses,

    I used this with good success on newer and rock cod jigs. Old Salas and Tady jigs have the toughest paint to remove even after soaking a day in remover. I used a torch and then a wire brush.

    What do you guys use to remove old paint off jigs?
    I just did these, cedar plugs and lures that were very wore out. I am adding a hook in middle of cedar to to complete them. Cheap airbrush and 2 part clear coat. I have 30 years of old lures to do in my retirement.
    I just rough sanded them and primed them for paint
