I am not an arachnid scientist by any means. So here is my best guess.
- Schizocosa maxima.
The spider is over 2 inches long.(Full spread would be about the size of a silver dollar).
Seen at approximately 1:30am and a temp. of 68 degrees. Approximately 200ft from the bank of Clear Lake in California.
Looks like a wolf spider, not poisonous.
Looks like Schizocosa mccooki. (It’s more common than maxima.)
