Outboard bogs when i give it gas

by Eric Buchholz
(Sour Lake Texas)

I have a 1996 Mercury 150 offshore (carburated).My problem is that when i start my engine at the boat ramp, it idles and runs fine. When i stop for awhile and restart the engine it idles great, but when i give it gas it bogs down, and will die unless i back off the gas and bring it back to an idle. i have to go through this several times, and then it will throttle up and get my boat on plane.

Any ideas? Thanks
