My passion flower had numerous beautiful blooms and the vines were healthy. It grew extensive with the vine structure being much thicker than the previous year; however, only two blooms appeared all summer and they were much much smaller than those of the previous year.
Also, only two fruit appeared whereas the previous year many fruit appeared. I fertilized the plant once during the spring. What can I do to make my plant more productive as far as blooms and fruit?

It sounds like you may have given the plant too much nitrogen. This causes vigorous growth but little in the way of blooms. You can counter this with adding more phosphorous to the plant. Bone meal is an excellent source of phosphorous.
