Can you exceed the recommended lure weight on a fishing rod? Like if the rod says up to 1/2oz can I go 5/8oz?

Can you exceed the recommended lure weight on a fishing rod? Like if the rod says up to 1/2oz can I go 5/8oz? I know if I you go to heavy the rod can snap, but is a fraction of an ounce that bad. Thanks
