Salt is mostly added to improve sinking rate, speeding it up. They use NaCl, regular rock salt, which has no scent. However, bass like salt's taste, holding onto a bait longer.

Huh! Maybe the salt does raise their blood pressure >:D Make em madder?

Bass have an excellent sense of taste, no doubt the last sense they use to decide whether to keep a bite or not. They have an acute sense of smell, and have inner ears like out, just no outer ear. We can appeal to all or any senses in any combination. I always try to appeal to all sense in cold muddy water and at night. But hey are mostly sight feeders, so getting the visual right in well lit water is vital.
