Comments & ID Thoughts
We think this is a Dark Fishing spider. Can anyone help i.d. it?
My wife said she saw a "Big spider" on our fireplace about a month ago. I heard a scream tonight, and the spider turned up in the sink while she was washing dishes! I put him in a tupperware container and my daughter let him go in the yard (wooded area).

You are correct. This is a dark fishing spider, Dolomedes tenebrosus. Thanks for putting her back outdoors where she belongs!
Thanks for the reply! My daughter will be excited to know she was right with the identification!
