First, forget about the pan's seasoning for a moment.

Second thing is the get a wire or brillo-type scrubber and scrub the rust off. You can use vinegar to make this more effective. There's really no secret to it: scrub, vinegar, scrub.

Once all rust has been removed, then progress to re-seasoning the cast iron. Here's a fairly good technique: http://www.thekitchn.com/technique-seaso-6719

Once the pan is free of rust and seasoned again, make sure you don't wash it after using. Clean it out and care for it like this:

I may try cast iron again thanks to this thread. I have tried several times but never was able to get even a bit of "non-stick" properties into a cast iron pan. I learned enough from that link to know I probably was not "seasoning" properly.

Vinegar should do the trick
