Outboard Stalling

I have a Tohatsu 4 stroke 6 hp outboard for the dinghy. Last year the engine ran great no problems. This year, it has started to stall when idling, and it 'sputters' when you initially increase throttle from the idle. It has new spark plug and new fuel filter. The gas in the tank is new also, with the proper octane rating. It seems with the throttle on revving high, either in neutral or in gear, it is fine. What is the best way to determine the problem.
