I have no water coming from my tail tell on my 2013 60 HP Mercury 4 Stroke. I am pretty sure the line is stopped up because a dirt sober had clogged it up and I used a wire but I am afraid I didn't get it all out. There are no alarms going off but I don't want to take the chance of blowing the engine. I am looking for someone to unclog the line and perhaps replace the water pump that does good work at a reasonable price and doesn't take forever to get the job done.

How far up the water line did you go?
Is the impeller relatively new?

Good video on following the water line.

I probably just went a few inches. The impeller is not new. More than 5 years for sure.

My guess is there is a partial blockage in the line and the old impeller isn't generating enough force for the water to pass.
Could be a relatively easy fix (impeller replacement and clear any line blockages)

the impeller needs to be changed for sure.

I was there in August when motor went into limp mode and they were 2 months out to even look at it. Surely the OP can find a shop that is closer to FtWorth. Motor is definitely overdue for an impeller.
