It's a good thing.  I have never used the Robo Worm, so, I do not know exactly what they look like.

However, in the warmer water, the salt is going to disperse quicker than it would in cooler waters.  

When fishing a lure that has a scent dispersion system, I fish it just like any other worm.  Somedays, the bass will like it fast, other days, they will like it slow, and yet, other days, they will only look at it if sits in their face for a long time.

The scent dispersion will leave a trail that a fish can follow, as bass have several scent receptors throughout their body.

I would think, that if you are having fish following the lure, that you are fishing it too fast.  The best rule of thumb in bass fishing during the middle of the summer and the middle of winter is that if you think that you are fishing slow enough, SLOW DOWN MORE!   ;D

Just keep fishing them, and you will get fish on them.

Salt serves two porposes, add weight to the bait and when the fish bite the bait it causes the fish to hold the bait in the mouth a little bit longer, salt doesn 't attract fish, fish are attracted to the bait by it 's action.

I am leaning more towards rauls post. Salt Provides weight and lets the fish hold on more. I am not sure though wether salt leaves a trail. I know for sure though fish attractent does.

some baits are impregnated with salt, some with attractants, many with both. I believe nwga was referring to any impregnated bait.

All good advice either way.

Yea, slow,slow slow.  Then try slower.

Not really referring to the attractants that you add to a bait, but many baits already have attractants built into them and that is what the bass would be "trailing".

Don 't jump on purchasing attractants, salted baits n 'stuff just "because", everything works, everything will help you to catch fish but in order to do that everything should be in the right proportion, the elements: bait-location-presentation have to be in the correct blend, if one of the elements is not correct the event ( catching fish ) will not happen, luck has little to do with it.

Bass have senses just like us, they can smell, hear, taste, touch just like we do and depending upon the conditions some senses become more important than others, for example, in murky water bass can 't see it 's prey well, but bass not only have eyes, bass can hear it, feel it , smell it, and once mouthed, taste it.

Smearing stuff ( "attractants" ) on your baits or purchasing stinky baits is just a small part of a whole, you can pour a gallon of attractant on a bait but if you 're not fishing it right ( presentation ) in the right place ( location ) you 're not going to catch 'em.

In reference to the Robo worms, they are really good worms.  They are extremely soft, but the action is really great.

Yeah they wiggle very life like, even the slightest movement causes them to move like a table dancer on steroids, the only bad thing about those super soft baits is that they tear up quite esily, it 's a give-take situation, you loose durability but gain action.

If you only fish s...l...o...w in really warm or cold water, you ARE going to miss out on some great fishing at times.  Don't just live by the slow "rule".  Fish are sluggish in cold and hot water and we like to think that a slow bait is always what is needed, but at times you have to get the fish to react to a fast bait to get a bite.  It's always worth a try fishing quickly for a few casts here and there throughout the day.  I have had days when the water was 45 in the spring and fall or 85+ in summer and the bass would only hit a crankbait as fast as I could reel it in.  My wrist was worn out in no time, but the catching was great!  

If you wanna fish slow though, try stitching a worm - you can spend 20 minutes per cast.  

Fish trailing a bait but not hitting can be a tough thing to figure out.  The fish are obviously atrracted to the bait, but the presentation lacks the trigger.  You could be fishing too fast, too slow, with too small a bait, wrong color, wrong size, etc.  You gotta change-up something though to get bit.
