Big Bend snook

I've been seeing pics of some big Snook caught lately. What water temp does it have to get down to before they head to warmer temps? Also do they migrate south or do they head up a river to a spring?

    its been my experience once you get N of Tampa most of them move inland into the springs and rivers to stay warm thru winter. of course we've all seen them stack up in the springs on the coldest nights- rubbing backs with the manatee and tons of mangos.
