Keep getting IndexError: list index out of range

When I test my battleship, using column guesses and rows 5 or greater returns the error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 31, in
IndexError: list index out of range

I was hoping for it to print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sank my battleship!"
elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X":
    print "You guessed that one already."
else:
    if guess_row not in range(5) or guess_col not in range(5):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    else:
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
        print_board(board)
        print "You missed my battleship!"
