I've been fishing a pencil I blew apart for 2 years now. Make sure you fill that gap good with epoxy and it'll be fine.

I guess we've all done that one time or two or more

Good time to point out that size on size doesn't work.....can't drill a 1/4" hole and expect a 1/4" diameter weight to go in the hole, especially not after sealing/priming/painting. Some holes need to be drilled to close sizes, like grommets, to help them stay put, weight holes can use a little clearance.

finish coat will put epoxy in that and you can fish it like any other plug (the fish don't care)
