Fuel filter

I just bought this truck and it seemed a bit underpowered while dragging my boat, so I began looking around for a possible issue. I went to change the fuel filter, and I knew I was probably in trouble when the nuts wouldn't come off the plastic powerstroke cover, because they were corroded on. So I got the filter changed, and was wondering if I should clean the screens in the fuel tank, based off of the looks of this filter? Thoughts?

Try running some fuel system cleaner from time to time. I run Optilube; it's great.

Good luck!
