Comments & ID Thoughts

This was a dark fishing spider that I captured last year I wanted to identify it because it molted a few times and I was wondering why it has a reddish rose color to it

This may instead be Dolomedes albineus. I can’t see certain details as well as I’d like in this image. It’s blurry but if there’s as much hair on the legs as I get the impression there is that points to D. albineus. The shape of the abdomen can look a little different too but I can’t see that from this angle.
