What weight jigs are the "most used"???

I assume lots of factors come into play, but day in/day out, what weight do you find yourself using the most??

Loc: Kaufman...kind of.
Just heavy enough to hang straight down or slightly behind the direction of drift.

Some days 3/4 ounce is more than enough and other days 2 ounces isn't, those days suck.

Use big socks or several socks to keep the drift at or near .5mph. I've seen 1oz to 2oz jig caught good fish. I prefer the 1 oz with very sharp hooks.

If I could only have one size in the boat that fits most scenarios it would be 1 oz
