Not stuck fast, it just lags the throttle response. So when you suddenly go WOT its flooding. If you slowing increase throttle the sticky choke gradually opens.
Needles get junk in them and floats can stick too.
I would just start by:
checking tank vent (easy)
replacing fuel filters (easy)
checking all plugs and wires (easy)
rebuilding the carb (bigger pain)
