We found this spider yesterday morning in our pool skimmer, underwater, clinging to the basket inside. He (it) must have been there for hours. We are surprised he didn't drown. We are located in Northern New Jersey. This is definitely the largest spider we've ever seen in this area, having lived here for 40+ years. Before we found the spider, I noticed a funnel-type web in a planter near the pool. It looks like it may be a wolf spider to me, but I'd love to have your expert opinion! Please see attached picture. Thank you~ New picture added 9/9... as close up as I could get through the jar!

It could be a fishing spider, they like water and have striped legs like yours does. Check them out
Nice closeup BTW
