In general, you preface the term with the field:
subject:fishing would search a field called "subject" for the term
"fish" if you have stemming turned on. It can be combined with other
fields and/or the body.
subject:fishing AND author:John AND boats
Would look for a subject containg fish, in documents authored by John
where the main body contained boat.
