ac leak at suction line

I found a very tiny pinhole leak coming out of a coupling on my suction line going to the Goodman AC unit. Is there any way to seal that leak up without spending alot of money, and without having to recover all the refrigerant and start over? Can it be done with something like JB weld or clamping rubber over the leak?

It will have to be brazed!

Will brazing require the existing refrigerant to need to be evacuated?

It might not have to. If it is just a pin hole and in a good spot it could be done like it is
