Low tide and a 5' draft are not something you really want to try at Angelfish. Rocky bottom will beat hell out of your keel. Just a short bit north is Broad Creek and about 7' or 8' of water. Much better outlet, deeper and wider. Be carefull where you "explore" with that 5' keel. Scout new areas with a dingy. In a lot of the Keys, 5'6" draft is starting to push things a lot. 5' isn't a whole lot better. Pay attention to your charts and you'll be fine.
