From the bank I always used 1.5, 2 oz weights. From a boat you'll have to experiment. I've seen guys fish live bait using spinning tackle, light line, and the slightly heavier split shot. Now those guys also control their drift. The current doesn't pull your line downstream nearly as swiftly as it does from the bank, so you can go lighter on the weight. Try 3/4-1 oz.
I caught some little bitty hybrids, drum, and catfish in Decatur yesterday below the railroad bridge. If you haven't been around there recently, the new boat launch on 20 is huge!
