Motor Cuts off, 1973 Evinrude 135 HP

Engine cuts off when I am coming in after being out for about 30 minutes. I can ride out to anywhere that gas and time will allow. I have gone as far as 12 miles out, I would cut the motor off, then fish for a while. Then when I am ready to return the motor seems to cut off after about a mile or two then I restart move again for a short period before it shut off again. I tried better GAS with a fuel cleaner additive and still no luck. It seem like the motor is not getting enough gas or this is what I think. I check and re prime the motor but the same thing happens again. It runs well when running. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Is your tank well vented? It may be creating a vaccum.
I am not so sure about the vent but I just got a new 6 gallon tank for testing and to use as a back up. I also changed yesterday the male connector on the motor and the replaced the fuel hose with the ball pump. I hope one of these things will work.
