I had a few of those but not on the actual joint itself. I sanded down and redid the expoxy in those areas and then feathered it out. After that I used a thin plastic spreader to flatten out expoxy when I put it on so that it would release any airbubbles that were trapped. I notice some people use a ribbed roller to minimize air bubbles in the expoy but I haven't tried it myself.
