You can use FullTextSqlQuery like it's described in this post or KeywordQuery like it's described in this post. How to choose between these two approaches you can find here.

See this video to understand how to create scope for list. Also you can find a list of available scopes in your search settings (Site Actions > Site Settings > Search scopes). – Alexander Feb 28 '13 at 12:26
