Help? I'm not 100% sure what this is. It was pretty large and hunting underneath the porch light.

Hi, it is either a male Fishing Spider or Nursery Web Spider, Pisaura mirabilis. The eyeshine that you can see in the photo is a reflection of bright light that mostly occurs with Pisauridae (nursery web and fishing) and Wolf spiders.
