Winter northern Poland - to see frozen lake -river - sea- islands?

Hi to all!
I was thinking to do a 10-15 day visit to Poland, soon after Christmas, in January, basing at Warsaw and Gdansk, and experience the cold season there (I’ve been to Warsaw- Krakow in summer), would love to visit frozen water scapes this time!
It seems that I have a thing with water, in all forms nature gives it!
Planning to walk around, take photos, do/ watch ice fishing, maybe take a ferry ride through frozen sea surface if possible, etc.
Simple day hiking in nature around cities or villages would also be perfect – but I’m not really into skiing, or high peaks , exhausting mountaineering…
I understand (?) that it will be cold, with less light hours , but could hope to have an enjoyable experience yet?
My budget is mostly at the lower part of budget spectrum (staying at hostels, moving with public transport…) so wouldn’t book a full package with travel agency – basically looking for simple independent travelling.
So, if you have any tips for such a kind of trip, places, recommendations etc would be a great great help!!!
happy holidays and happy new year!!

This winter in Poland is unfortunately warm. So you don’t have any chance to see frozen lakes or rivers as well. Maybe in February will something change :(.
