Default First try ice

Heading with Boy Scouts to Forestburgh NY to camp. Ice fishing is on the agenda, but I have never been. Would real worms or senkos have any chance through the ice. We have a few small rods and a few tip ups the scouts made. I have no ice stuff, could we use small jig head?
Thanks. The hand powered auger should be interesting

Keep hands and fingers away from the blades on the hand auger unless you want it to look like a murder crime scene.
Did you go on the New York DEC website and purchase your license yet ?

small jig heads with meal worms will work in a pinch it is going to be tough feeling the strikes with a regular rod also small spoons like kastmasters or phobies might work as well. put shiners on the tip ups about 10" to a foot off the bottom. use a spit shot up about 12 to 14 " above the hook to get it down to the preferred depth... good luck. tight lines.
