fishing spider and its egg sac - Dolomedes scriptus - Female
North Bay, Lake Nippissing, Ontario, Canada
September 1, 2019
Size: appr 2.3cm
Is this a fishing/dock spider? spotted at the end of a public wharf on Lake Nippissing in North Bay on the hot sunny afternoon of Sept 2nd. I believe it was carrying its egg sac (same colour as its body round and appr 1cm diameter) under its belly...with its legs it was an appr 6.5cm spread, the body alone was appr 2cm of that.

Dolomedes tenebrosus?
I'm not a spider expert but yours looks a lot like D. tenebrosus.
