I purchased a lazer mag express last year and am noticing that when I have the choke lever on the run position, it tends to bog down while drilling. I have new gas in it and the plug is fine. It seems to work better when I have the choke barely on. Would a shot of sea foam do the trick, or do I need to look at something else?

Any suggestions would be appreciated...

Could be the gas cap vent. As a test, try it again with the cap a bit loose.

My auger was doing the same thing last weekend. I drained the old gas out, put fresh gas in, and added some SeaFoam to the gas. Ran it in my garage for about 10 minutes and it seemed to get better. I went down to the river today and drilled twenty holes to see if it was gonna work alright, and it ran perfectly. This fixed my problem, maybe it'll work for you too. I tryed the SeaFoam with the old gas first, but it didn't work till I changed the gas too. It's worth a try before tearing the carb apart.

Thanks CatManLee, I was going to try the seafoam, but just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions out there.

If Seafoam doesn't clean out your highspeed jet, I would open the high speed jet just a little (counterclockwise), but remember what position it was in, cause once the Seafoam does it's job it will probably start to load up from to much gas.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
