Let this be a lesson to avid fisherman: If you're planning to scorn a woman, don't tell her about your secret fishing spots.

Angela Potter of New Zealand wasn't pleased when her former boyfriend packed his stuff in her suitcase, took off for Australia and wouldn’t return the suitcase, according to New Zealand magazine Stuff.

So when Potter found her ex had left the GPS coordinates to his favorite fishing spots in her garage, she decided to get revenge -- and some cash -- by offering to sell them on the auction and classifieds site Trade Me, according to Stuff. Much to her surprise, she made $3,000.

Her ex-boyfriend wasn't happy about the sale, but Potter says she won't spread the secret fishing spots beyond the winners of the auction.

"I wouldn't do that. I'm fairly honorable in that respect," she told Stuff.
