Elkhorn fern

Hi, I am brand new to this list.  Have a question about an elkhorn fern
I have had for well over 3 years.  It's potted in a 14" clay pot and has
been for 2 years.  About two months ago it started losing every new
frond and has thinned out considerably.  They get about 2-3" tall and
then to wither and break right off in my hand.  I live in South Florida,
the plant is on a covered, screened patio, and I water it two to four
times a week depending on humidity and how much it's rained outside.
The plant has grown to the edge of the pot and has grown over the side
in one spot.  The foot (I call it rhyzome) is completely exposed on top
of the pot, no soil over it like it had when I first put it in that pot.
I am thinking I need to get it out of the pot and see what's going on
inside there, and either pot up or divide it up.  Help, please.  Thank
