I learned by playing with my fingers (a method that I still prefer) and then I tried learning by pick. Practice with both while you're still learning (and not on a bass you're partial to the finish on) so that you can learn both and not be stuck with one or the other.
When I do pick, I use a heavier guage pick, heaviest I can find. because the guage of my strings is so thick, I can't use the lighter ones to get a good, strong tone out of the instrument.
