Default Sink Tip for 9wt Predator

Hey! Long time lurker.. First time poster...

I live along the upper Mississippi river.. I would like to take advantage of the great fishing opportunities of the dam systems.. 10' T-14's seem to work fine for the slower.. yet still fast.. spillways.. and I can toss them fine with my 8'3" 9wt Predator that's over-lined with WF10F Precision Pike.. Slows the rod down a bit.. but very comfortable to cast.. my question is what size sink tip should I try or can i get away with on my setup.. This would be in conditions that normally involve the use of jigs/lures in the 1oz+ range.. and 2-4oz sinkers to stay in place... when using conventional tackle... 36000+cfs discharge at the dam.. I'd like to get down as deep as possible or at least be heavy enough to not be instantly spit to shore by the current

Thanks
