Comments & ID Thoughts

I've also found this spider inside my bathtub & must've come up the drain since the house is on dirt & not even on a slab, I live next to a river & have a huge open yard/field behind my house & then some brush & trees & the river goes along my yard as well... This spider is super fast! I haven't seen any webs from this particular spider since it's come up my tub drain twice in 1 week & was flushed back down the drain with water & possibly injured the 2nd time getting hit maybe with a bowl but think it was too fast to get hit & when I found it outside last night sitting on a wooden pallet that I have a trash & recycling storage unit sitting on top of & there's 2"X4"s going around the pallet & trash storage unit, I noticed on the legs there's alternating sections of brown & black & with it's legs spread out like this it's at least the size of the palm of my hand... my friend helped me find this website & her guess is a fishing spider?? I did try to whack it with the flat hoe edge of a hand gardening tool but I think I missed & it just got away. I was outside this morning pulling any weeds around where it was found but I didn't look in &/or under the pallet since the 2"X4"s make it hard to see under & didn't see anything around the corner where it was last night. I have more pictures & a video that might help anyone to identify it, if interested please email me
