Actually...
this kinda reminds me of Dolomedes in the family Pisauridae. This is just a suggestion, though...it might be a Lycosid, too. You'll have to wait for someone who really knows spiders for something more concrete.

 
Jeff know his spiders.
No wonder this didn't look like any of the w*olf spiders on bugguide :-) I found a smaller one yesterday.

 
That's...
who I was hoping would see these shots:-)

Today I returned to the site
with an extension pole for my net, two 5-gallon buckets, and a medium-sized heavy duty plastic trash can with lid. I scooped out floating pieces of isocyanurate, styrofoam, and beadboard as well as the organic flotsam, loading up the trash can with as much as I could cram in, plus two 5-gallon buckets full. I'm sure I've got several hundred specimens not counting spr*ingtails and mit*es. Early results show a wide variety of families and orders.

 
Let me revise upwards:
Make that *thousands* of arthropods !!

Nice photos, particularly this.
But 12mm? That must look like Gigantor to you.
