You should incorporate the fifth fret for practice of reach and a full-sounding tone. I remember years ago my bass teachers telling me to only use the open strings if completely necessary.

Using the fifth fret can give you easy access to bridge the gap on to other notes, as well as easily incorporate transitional riffs.
