Pitch of prop

by Erik G
(Sandpoint, Idaho)

I have a 17 foot rebel fund fishing boat with a 850 85 hp Mercury outboard. I recently upgraded the prop to a 17 pitch, will only go 26 mph with rpm's topping out at about four grand should I go back to a 15 pitch prop or do I need to adjust my Throttle in the controller area of motor because those have been taken off and put back on??
