    I think you answered your own question - you shouldn't. I don't mean to be flip. I just find that the the sound of a pick on bass strings does not cut it for me. Also I think you play faster and more accurate with your fingers. You can also develop a large tonal range with your fingers that is hard to do with a pick.
