Just would like to know what it is and if it’s at all dangerous. Close to 1.5” long.

This is a fishing spider. I think it’s Dolomedes tenebrosus. It’s not dangerous at all.

I just found a ton of these guys on garden island in lake Michigan. Garden island is an outlying island around beaver island. I’ll play pictures shortly. Same pattern.
