I don't remember much about it because I was so young at the time. I would say it came out somewhere between 80s to early 90s judging by the art style.

Things that I clearly remember are:

  • The main character was a teen boy with brown hair. He might have had a younger little sister there.

  • Fighting a huge fish (green or yellow) looking monster that could fly. Imagine a big-ass catfish looking thing.

  • Actual fight was some large cliffside surrounded by sea

Can't remember if there were mechas, planes or if he was using a fishing rod.

It's not much to go on but hopefully someone recognizes what I'm referring to.

It is more recent than you're looking for, but the 2011 TV series Hunter x Hunter fits the criteria:

The story begins with a young boy named Gon.... In order to prove his ability to take the exam, Gon catches the local monster fish, "Lord of the Lake".

The main character, Gon, carries and uses a fishing pole as a tool/weapon (as well as using it to fish with!). I seem to recall he was on a cliff for part of the fight, perhaps the one along the right in this picture:

Gon fighting monster fish

The main character looks like this:

Gon using fishing pole

  • Not sure this fits. Besides the time difference, Gon's hair is dark green, not brown, and the Lord of the Lake is blue, not green or yellow.

    @F1Krazy yeah I think it's a long shot, but figured it was worth suggesting, if only for disambiguation. And people are going to end up here searching for "fishing rod."
