Winnsboro used to be one the best lakes around. Since about 2000 or so though, the tournament pressure out there in the spring is unreal. From March until June, nearly every Saturday and Sunday there will be 75-100 boats on that thing. I looked on TPWD survey numbers and they were WAY down the last time they did a survey. I know a lot of that had to do with the drought in 2005. I think the numbers are on the way back up though. I fished a tournament on it in December and there were 2, 20 lb stringers weighed.
Set the hook first, ask questions later.
