The lives of thousands -- and perhaps eventually millions -- of Earth's residents have been bettered by the genius of Elon Musk. The guy's brain functions differently than that of mere mortals, and it's always cobbling together designs for machines that maximize the benefits of physical properties.

He's certainly smart, but he spends his days in stuffy boardroom meetings, while I'm on the water shooting the next episode.

So you tell me: Who's smarter?

In this installment, my son, Joel, and I take an afternoon trip on a scorching-hot day, looking for redfish, speckled trout and more. We have to work for our fish under a withering September sun, but once great Helios starts to make his escape toward the western horizon, the action picks up considerably.
