A friend of mine came over on Saturday and started a Channel Cat iradication program in my pond. I want them all gone, I think.

I'm tired of them eating half the fish food from my automatic feeder program and I thought they were working over my forage fish too hard.

They caught 13 channels ranging from 3-6# and we cut open all their stomachs and they were all full of algae.

Is this typical?

It's likley they're eatting it while they're rummaging around for aquatic insects or as Josh mentioned; perhaps the food is washing up against algae mats. Algae is by no means in the diet of catfish, but they will ingest it accidentally.
