Maranacook isn't usually that much different than Messa.  Maranacook at the south end had about 12" of ice over 50 feet of water on 3/17 and the shorelines were good.  On 3/21, there was 15" of ice at the north end, but by day's end the top half was soft and open spots were expanding and the shoreline was so-so in spots. Conditions are changing fast, so no guarantees as you know.
