Bass pick suggestions

I recently started playing bass after taking a break from guitar. When playing guitar I use Dunlop Jazz III picks, and have been using the same thing for bass. To be honest, i'm not entirely sure if most people use a regular guitar pick for bass or not.
Anyone have any suggestions for something maybe a bit better for bass?

Dunlop ULTEX shapies either 1.14 or 1.4mm. They have a sharp attack and add a bit of grit to your overall sound IMO. If you really like the small Jazz IIIs then you can check out the Jazz III XLs too. They're identical to the Jazz picks, just normal sized.

That said, there isn't really any "standard" if you like the feel and sound you get with the jazz picks, stick to them...

I'm a jazz III user aswell, and mainly use them for bass too (unless i JUST USE MY FINGERS, which is obviously not what this thread is about..). However, i find the stubby's (or big stubby's) a bit sweeter, but harder to find and quickly worn down.
