    I always use powder myself. Never tried the salt.

    Doesn't matter, but buying the garlic powder and salt separately is much cheaper. I can spend about $1.50 on a 2 or 3 ounce container of garlic salt, or I can spend about $2.50 for 3 1# containers of salt and a container of garlic powder. For me, it's a no-brainer.

    If you are coating your baits then restoring I would use garlic powder. Salt absorbs moisture and dries baits up. You can always add salt to your bait later if you want.

    I prefer to buy garlic powder and salt separately. That way, I can control the ratio between the two; with garlic salt, I'm never quite sure what the proportions are.

    In my opinion all the replies are leading you on the right path. Plain old salt non-iodized is cheap. I coat my liver with that till they start to "dry" up. Then I use garlic powder and then more salt,powder,etc as needed.
