Alright...I'm out of ideas

I have a 1988 Johnson 28HP motor that is NOT a tiller. The motor will start, and rough-idle (for about 30 seconds) before it stalls. When I try to "rev" it up, it bogs and stalls. This motor had been in storage for about 6 years, but I have replaced the plugs and the main fuel line in the motor. When the motor is chocked, it will continue to run, but it is very smokey and runs very rough. I am at my wit's end, and I DON'T want to take it to my local shop and pay $75 an hour if it's something simple. Any advice is welcome!

I really want to get this thing running so I can get it out on the water ONCE before I have to put it in storage.
