I've found that I catch a lot more cats fishing the deep, outside edge of the grass (6' +). This time of year, that's where there are more specks, so it's a tough go.
Redfish will usually be shallower when actively feeding, so I fish shallower. Trout will be shallower when the water is cooler, and occasionally (especially early and late) they will be shallow this time of year.
Artificals that move - topwaters (Skitterwalk, TopDog), sub-surface plugs (MirrOdine XL), etc. - are more selective baits for specks and reds. I don't find that you'll catch a bunch in hot weather this way, but those you'll catch will be decent fish.
Scented soft plastics (like Gulp) and dead baits are EXCELLENT choices for catching cats! LOL
Some of the other suggestions - large baits, fishing the lights, etc. - are really good ideas.

It's a rare thing here in Louisiana to catch catfish on artificial lures other than Gulp.
